The A-List 2015
Not Rated | 1h 44min | Comedy, Drama | 12 May 2015 (USA)
Eric Schultz, the most popular student at Lake O’Dell High School, is coerced by his guidance counselor, Sylvia Martin, into fulfilling a list of her high school fantasies in order for him to graduate.
This isn’t normally the sort of movie that gets a lot of feedback or reviews, but as an avid movie lover and user of IMDb for years this was the first one that made me register an account finally to give it a good vote.
A-List seems like your typical high school story of the popular kid and the dramatic thing that would never really happen happening and the whole school being obsessed with being popular etc. But it didn’t turn into the predictable movie I was expecting. It is still a simple plot, but the acting, writing, and especially the filming were of a quality you don’t come to expect from movies that didn’t even get much advertising.
Just wanted to give credit where credit is most definitely due, and this is a movie that while not too complicated, is still made with such quality that the synopsis and cheesy picture on the front don’t quite do it justice. This won’t be making my top 10 or even top 30 favorite movie list, but if I see this director or these actors pop up again in another movie, i’ll be excited to see it.
