    An engaging and timely documentary about a group of LA high school drama classes competing in a Shakespeare competition. Treads familiar ground, but has a keen understanding of the need for the arts in public schools. Featuring special appearances by Kevin Spacey, Richard Dreyfuss, and Val Kilmer, SHAKESPEARE HIGH is a testament to the power of drama to enrich kids' lives.
