HBO Films' "Bad Education," Starring Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney Debuts April 25

"Inspired by true events, BAD EDUCATION, debuting SATURDAY, APRIL 25 (8:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT), follows Frank Tassone (Hugh Jackman) and Pam Gluckin (Allison Janney) who reign over a popular Long Island school district on the verge of the nation’s top spot, spurring record college admissions and soaring property values. But when an embezzlement scheme surfaces that threatens to destroy all they’ve built, Frank is forced to maintain order and secrecy - by whatever means necessary.

The film will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners’ streaming platforms." …

This is such an enjoyable movie! I saw it last September at TIFF and it got a very enthusiastic reaction. Apparently it hews pretty closely to the facts of the Roslyn, LI, case. Jackman is very effective as the slimey superintendant and Allison Janney is wonderful as usual. Makes you understand “how could this happen?”

@janesmith I read an online, lengthy story last night since the movie trailer is out. In the past week, I’ve read about Roslyn school theft and the ex-con father who moved in and destroyed student lives at Sarah Lawrence College. Maddening stories! And yes, while reading, you can’t believe what people get away with.

I like Hugh Jackman, Allison Janney and Ray Liotta, look forward to the movie.

Ray Liotta is great but Ray Romano is in this movie! I’ve done this twice on College Confidential!

I loved Ray Romano in Goodfellas! He got robbed at the Oscars, but it was cool how they spun off that character into an entire series for him. ?

Sounds like the title of a movie Rodney Dangerfield should be in.
