The comedy Public Schooled, directed by Kyle Rideout and starring Judy Greer, Daniel Doheny, Siobhan Williams, and Russell Peters has been acquired by Gravitas Ventures for release in the U.S. The film which recently made its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival will be released theatrically in the U.S. in late Q1/early Q2 2018. Kaleidoscope Entertainment will release the film theatrically in the UK.
Based on an original script co-written by Rideout and Josh Epstein, Public Schooled follows socially awkward Liam (Doheny), who has been homeschooled his entire life. When he falls in love with a popular one-legged girl (Williams), he abandons his mother’s (Greer) suffocating love and enrolls in public school, getting a crash course in sex, drugs and social mayhem.
