The Class / Entre les murs
Director: Laurent Cantet
2008 | France | 122 min | 35mm | NC16 - Course Language
In French with English subtitles

The tense environment of a tough inner-city school where cultures and attitudes often clash is revealed in this award winning (Palm D'Or, Cannes 2008) drama based on François Bégaudeau's best selling novel Between the Walls. Bégaudeau himself stars as an idealistic teacher of a class of unruly 15 year-olds, whose spiky independence present constant challenges to his sometimes unconventional teaching methods. Featuring an outstanding non-professional cast of real teachers and students, Laurent Cantet's gripping and sharply observed film offers a microcosm of contemporary society and explores the difficult issues facing education today.
