In Loco Parentis (2016)
Critic Reviews for In Loco Parentis
Neasa Ní Chianáin's gentle but keen-eyed documentary celebrates contemporary, constructive methods of elementary education, while also taking cozy comfort in the more longstanding aspects of the institution.
Ni Chianain and co-director David Rane make no attempts to reinvent the documentary wheel here, crafting a solid showcase for the charming idiosyncracies of their well-chosen, well-matched protagonists.
Finds a finite poetry in the raw nature of education itself.
Childhood is a mystery we endlessly come back to and a place the Leydens have never fully left; Ní Chianáin gives the viewer an intimate view of it in this unusual little story.
It is, however, a very endearing portrait of John and Amanda Leyden, the chain-smoking, wise-cracking educators who run Headfort, and whose proximity to retirement age lends the project a certain wistfulness.
