  • Neasa N Chianin'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.

  • From shooting in the dormitories at night to recording in the homes of teachers, filmmaker Neasa N Chianin and her partner and co-director, David Rane, have really managed to get an all-access pass to the school.

    March 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Childhood is a mystery we endlessly come back to and a place the Leydens have never fully left; N Chianin gives the viewer an intimate view of it in this unusual little story.

    March 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.
