Movie Info

HIGH SCHOOL RECORD follows four awkward 17-year-olds as they struggle through their senior year. Like most high school students, they ride a continual wave of embarrassment: crappy after-school jobs, attempted sex in the science room, tinfoil shorts, guitar-strumming hippie teachers and brushes with the law. The only difference is that their moments of humiliation are all caught on tape - our gang of four are the subjects of a documentary shot by fellow classmates.A journey into narrative anarchy, HIGH SCHOOL RECORD is an engaging film partially improvised by its young cast. Written by Ben Wolfinsohn and based on his own high school experiences, HIGH SCHOOL RECORD is a painfully funny exploration of the teenage mind.HIGH SCHOOL RECORD is a follow up to Wolfinsohn's critically acclaimed music documentary FRIENDS FOREVER.-- © Stop Following Me Productions

Critic Reviews for High School Record

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Wolfinsohn fashions a movie of uncommon feeling and authenticity that, despite its minuscule budget and lack of MTV-friendly faces, could generate a word of mouth cult following.

Naturalistic, semi-improvised series of awkward comic vignettes ... nails the liberating/frightening social moments of post-pubescence in all their riches of embarrassments.

High School Record has a lot of good intentions, but you'll be better off leaving your uncomfortable teen years in the past rather than trying to revisit them here.

Film Threat

None of the actors are strong enough to adapt to the improvisation clearly on display and that leaves us wondering if they are behaving naturally or are just bad actors.
