Drama, Musical
Another environmental study (1980) by Alan Parker, whose previous investigations included a Turkish prison (Midnight Express) and a miniature Chicago (Bugsy Malone). This time it's the New York High School of Performing Arts, where half a dozen main characters struggle to overcome their one-note personal problems through a cathartic application of Art. The film is cut at such a frenzied pitch that it's often possible to believe (mistakenly) that something significant is going on. With Irene Cara, Lee Curreri, Eddie Barth, and Laura Dean.
