Rating of

Dennis Gansel's gripping, tight adaptation of the teen novel of the same name, itself based upon the California high school experiment which led a well-intentioned sociology teacher to turn his class into a fascist movement. Ever-so-slightly predictable but still thought provoking and believable. The stellar cast make this a fine double with Das Experiment from Downfall (Der Untergang) director Oliver Hirschbiegel - another German adaptation of an American social studies experiment on control...a worrying preoccupation with dictatorships anyone?
