Join us at the Rio Theatre on Wednesday, May 2 for a screening of the new, Vancouver-shot comedy ADVENTURES IN PUBLIC SCHOOL (Public Schooled) – with cast and crew in attendance!
Socially awkward Liam has been home-schooled his whole life. When he falls in love with a popular one-legged girl, he abandons his mother’s suffocating love and enrolls in a public school, entering a world of sex, drugs and social studies. With Judy Greer, Russell Peters, Grace Park, Daniel Doheny, Siobhan Williams, Andrew McNee.
“The writing and direction of Public Schooled put a bright spin on high-school antics, and the ace cast makes the grade, led by Judy Greer‘s long-proven down-to-earth magic and the deft physical comedy of Daniel Doheny.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
“Judy Greer proves a resourceful comedienne, as usual, and a colorful array of supporting characters are nicely turned. The film’s biggest single asset, however, is newcomer Doheny …” (Variety)
“Grace Park and Andrea Bang steal every one of their scenes as a mother-child pairing even odder than Judy Greer and Daniel Doheny, and Andrew McNee is a stealthy delight as Liam’s officious, easily distracted principal.” (NOW Toronto)
