I guess there's only so much you can do with this story...

...but adding an overbearingly loud satirical score, doesn't make this a satirical dark comedy. For that matter, where was the comedy? This film would've showed better and captivated the audience by making it a drama, with a proper score, faster pacing, with elevated personalities and dialogue, instead of drab and monotonic characters. Jackman was the only reason I didn't fall asleep, and his outstanding performance is the majority of my score. Poor judgement on the screenplay's genre choice, but decent directing and cinematography. A generous 7/10 from me.

Jackman gives what may be the performance of his career

This HBO movie is based on a real event where a prestigious public school district was struck by an embezzlement scandal. This was a well put-together film. This was an interesting character study into those who betray their positions. Director Cory Finley does a great job here. This is one of those films where all the edits and shots are so well planned. Hugh Jackman as the superintendent gives what might be the best performance of his career and lifts every scene he is in. He is so nuanced in this and can say so much from just a facial expression. Be forewarned that this is a deliberately paced film. The movie does a good job of building the characters out to be three-dimensional, but some might find this slow-paced. Also, be forewarned that the scenes of the characters' personal lives aren't quite as juicy as when the movie is addressing the crimes. Overall, I say give this a shot.

An instant favorite

I was uninterested in watching this movie, but thought I would give it a shot given that it's based on a true story. Allison Janney is amazing, Hugh Jackman delivers a great performance, Geraldine Viswanathan is stellar (as always), but the entire cast is great (truly). From the beginning the film tells the story in captivating and compelling ways. The momentum builds over the course of the hundred minutes. Edge of your seat storytelling. This could have been made into a miniseries. It's just that good. Do yourself a favor and see it.
