Magnolia Pictures New Documentary – SCHOOL LIFE
Opening September 8th
Critics are loving this one! The observational documentary follows a year in the lives of 2 inspirational teachers in the only primary-age boarding school in Ireland. For John, rock music is just another subject alongside Maths, English, Scripture and Latin, all of which are taught in a collaborative and often hilarious fashion. For his wife Amanda, the key to connecting with children is the book, and she uses all means to snare the young minds. As John and Amanda ponder retirement, the film poses a quietly profound question: Will their intimate and caring cultivation of future generations live on, or will it vanish like so many community-centered practices?
