Audience Reviews for New Boy

Schoolchildren find a common bond in making fun of their teacher. A very sweet film, if a little simplistic. I thought the kids in this one did a great job, and everything was 100% believable. I was a little confused as to the New Boy's backstory, but that's a minor quibble. Very good, and a worthy nominee.
