Bad Education (★★★½) H360 Podcast

“Bad Education,” is a movie drama based on a true story and streaming on Hulu, HBO, and Amazon Prime, Hugh Jackman plays Dr. Frank Tassone the disgraced superintendent of Roslyn Schools in Long Island, NY. He’s the last person you would have ever expected to get caught embezzling money from his schools. Allison Janey plays the Assistant Superintendent, who also served prison time for her involvement.

The Bottom-Line: I’m way in 3 ½ stars out of 4 Hugh Jackman is the reason to see this film. It’s one of his best performances of his career. Allison Janey gives a strong performance as well. “Bad Education” is directed by Cory Finley—his second film after the terrific film Thoroughbreds—and was written by Mike Makowsky, who was a middle school student at Roslyn when Tassone was arrested in 2004.
