In this hilarious, coming-of-age film, the drama and disappointments of pre-teen life are magnified through the lens of a 5th grade theater production. The kids in the play are “us”, including the chubby kid, the class clown, the stutterer and the overachiever. As curtains up approaches, moments become taut with magic and mania. In the end, this award winning film is about more than putting on a play. It’s about fighting to discover who we are.
