Bad Education (2019)

Cory Finley (Thoroughbreds) directs Hugh Jackman, Allison Janney, Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers) and Ray Romano in this true story embezzlement scandal dramedy.

"Long Island school superintendent Frank Tassone (Jackman) and his assistant superintendent for business, Pam Gluckin (Janney), are credited with bringing Roslyn School District unprecedented prestige. Frank, always immaculately groomed and tailored, is a master of positive messaging, whether before an audience of community leaders or in an office with a concerned student or parent. In short, it seems Frank can do no wrong. That is, until a plucky student reporter (Viswanathan) decides to dig deep into some expense reports and begins to uncover an embezzlement scheme of epic proportions, prompting Frank to devise an elaborate cover-up — by any means necessary." (Toronto International Film Festival)

It's a story about the lengths people will go to for self-preservation, deliciously mean and as funny as it is outrageous.

The film's real ace is a never-better Jackman, following up an underrated turn in last year's The Front Runner with another difficult and inscrutable protagonist.
