Filmfest 2018

Public schools are for losers, think many Americans. But Liam, who is home-schooled by his mother as much in teen angst as in physics, is anything but a loser. Cambridge is calling, but the furtive call of beautiful, one-legged Anastasia, whom Liam meets at an exam, is louder. Liam redefines rebelliousness, briefly puts his scientific career on hold, and enrolls at a public high school — where he must deal with taunts, flirting and quite possibly his first shot at romance.
