THE CLASS

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Based on former teacher François Begeaudeau’s bestselling novel ‘Between the Walls’, this Palme d'Or-winning portrait of school life from the director of 'The Workshop' (now showing exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema) and the writer of '120 BPM (Beats Per Minute)', explores the tensions and issues faced by both teachers and pupils in the classroom. Begeaudeau also stars as François Martin, a young teacher who brings new ideas into an inner-city school only to find that they don’t all work out. Director Laurent Cantet cast a group of non-professional actors to play the students. The result feels authentic, giving each scene an air of urgency and the sense that anything could happen. ★★★★★ "There are very few films that can claim to make their audiences into happier and smarter people. I think this could be one" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
