Adventures in Public School

Liam has plans, y’all. He’s going to get into Harvard and become the second most famous astrophysicist ever, thanks to being home-schooled by the coolest mom ever. That is, until he crushes on the pretty one-legged girl at his local high school. You know what? New plans. Liam’s going to botch his college entrance exams, tell his mom he should finish his schooling at the local high school, and enroll as the recently deceased Maria Sanchez so he can win the heart of the pretty one-legged girl. Maria Sanchez has plans, y’all. Named one of Canada’s ten-best films, ADVENTURES IN PUBLIC SCHOOL is the LOL-inducing coming-of-age story about every socially awkward nerd just trying to pass modern dance class. With memorable performances from Judy Greer as Liam’s mom and a star-turn by Daniel Doheny as Liam/Maria, this film will take you back to school. As the recently deceased Maria Sanchez. —T.W.
