Family Flicks: School of Rock
Recommended for ages 10+
Remember when a thumping rock anthem was all you really needed? Jack Black and director Richard Linklater do! In this comedic riff on Dead Poets Society—if Walt Whitman could shred—Black plays a six-string dreamer turned substitute teacher who unleashes the power of rock to bring out the best in his private elementary school class. You’ll laugh until you’re dancing in the aisles!
(2003, dir. Richard Linklater, English, DCP, color, 109 min.)
