Back to School Double Bill

MUBI Special

Yes, it’s THAT time of the year again… So let’s have some fun. From a repressive all-male boarding school of 60s England, to an exclusive High School in the Berverly Hills of the noughties, revolution starts in the classroom.

Pretty Persuasion

Marcos Siega United States, 2005

This sinister Sundance player divided audiences over its withering satire of high school politics and media frenzy surrounding molestation charges. Its sneaky cult status has been kept alive by those attuned to its dark comedy—and by fans of Evan Rachel Wood, Ron Livingston and Jane Krakowski.


Lindsay Anderson United Kingdom, 1968

Lindsay Anderson and Malcolm McDowell, what more can you want? This Palme d’Or-winning classic—and McDowell’s startling debut—is a seething picture of late 60s social unrest. Anderson’s brash approach of weaving the observational and the surreal makes this film as shocking now as it was in 1968.
