Critic Reviews for Shakespeare High

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

It's impossible not to root for these driven, high-spirited participants - and for the longevity of this invaluable program.

April 5, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Alex Rotaru's very busy docu focuses more on the kids' stories than on their work; considering how sensational some of them are, it's probably a strategic advantage.

March 10, 2012

The real stars here are the kids themselves - all chasing after a small shiny statue, and a much larger dream.

March 9, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Director Alex Rotaru could have focused more; three or four really compelling stories are scattered among a handful of others.

March 9, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An inspiring, if too short and overcrowded, examination of the competition among high schools at the 90th annual Drama Teachers Association of Southern California Shakespeare Festival.

March 8, 2012 | Rating: 3/5

Rotaru breaks no new ground, but he doesn't have to.
