Good drive though obvious story
Caught this on a TV-channel tonight and didn't think I would be so caught up in it. The film has a quite convoluted synopsis, but acting is decent and the drive of the story is very good. So this is a well made and entertaining flick. It's in style a typical TV movie, but still this has a lot to offer. The film is like a thriller in it's drive towards the end.
It starts off in a typical high school environment, where some girls are annoying a school mate. They are to take their tests to get into college. A couple of weaker students are getting their results, which obviously are not getting them into their wanted colleges.The only way in will be to make the smartest student do their test in other counties in the areas. And since one of the smartest is in need of money because of a brother needing treatment and a father losing his job, the scam is on.
Director Campbell has really got his best out of the young actors, which manages to carry this story on their backs, though only semi-known actors. Also some of the parents does well.
The story is well old and the film is well made, and I can recommend the film, both as entertainment as well as a debate about school test cheating.
