Come to Springfilm for a ‘Bad Education’

Join Springfilm at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, March 25, as Hugh Jackman and Alison Janney deliver a ‘Bad Education’ – based on the biggest public school embezzlement in U.S history. The film opens in 2002 where School Superintendent Dr. Frank Tassone (Jackman) and Assistant Superintendent Pam Gluckin (Janney) have overseen major improvements to the district.  However, when a student reporter starts investigating the building of a new skywalk, she instead uncovers evidence pointing to the possible embezzlement of millions.  The film won an Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie with both Jackman and Janney applauded for their roles.  Following the film, attendees can take part in a fun, lively discussion.
