School Life

Comedy, Drama 1h 51m 2020

School Life is a laugh-out-loud, heart-warming look at the daily grind of High School.

Samia (played by the César Award-winning Zita Hanrot) is the new vice principal at an inner-city school in Paris. Despite the school’s poor academic record and the majority of its enrolment coming from Paris’ infamous Saint-Denis social housing tower blocks, Samia sees potential in all of them - taking a shine to Yanis, a bright but disillusioned teen with dreams of becoming a filmmaker.

Packed with laughs as well as drama, School Life is an emotional journey through the ups and downs of the education system, with brilliant performances from an ensemble cast.
