Welcome back class, we're heading into a dissonant discussion this week with Mona Lisa Smile (2003) and Toy Soldiers (1991). These two films are working toward very different end-goals, and figuring out which was more successful is our focus. Let us know your thoughts. Remember, there are no wrong answers.
This week's discussion is about two films and their very different approaches to a similar story, being the new girl in school. Wild Child (2008) and St. Trinian's (2007) have so much in common we've adjusted our normal format to better highlight their differences. Only one of these films is going to make it to the semi-finals, which school has better prepared its students?

We've reached the end of our first round of course material class. After this we'll be diving deeper into previous topics. But let's focus on the films at hand, Class (1983) and School Ties (1992). Two very different takes on working class teens working to get to Harvard.

Get ready students, we're covering some very disparate films this week. First we have campy superhero romp Sky High (2005). Then we have a dark gritty retooling of Shakespeare in O (2001). An odd pairing indeed. Listen up to see where this goes.
Welcome back class, this week we have some international students joining us. From France we have Madeline (1998) and from Columbia Toy Soldiers (1991). They couldn't be further apart, but the contrast is what makes our discussions interesting. Follow our discussion to find out which of these films will be invited back.
Not sure how many of you reading this are stuck in a time loop, but I hope this episode is at least able to fill some time for you.
