School Life

Comedy, Drama 1h 51m 2020

An entertaining French comedy depicting the daily grind of High School.

Synopsis: Samia is the new vice principal at an inner-city school in Paris. Despite the school’s poor academic record and the majority of its enrolment coming from Paris’ infamous Saint-Denis social housing tower blocks, Samia sees potential in her students - taking a shine to Yanis, a bright but disillusioned teen with dreams of becoming a filmmaker.

A hilarious and emotional journey through the ups and downs of the French education system, with brilliant performances from an ensemble cast.

“Entertaining and enthralling from start to finish, School Life is well worth seeking out.” ~ James Croot, Stuff.
