The Lesson

I couldn't find a thread about this, but there were definitely other people there too :) .

Despite the micro-budget, this was one of my favourites of the whole festival; I thought the Robert Hands' central performance was award-winning stuff and the rest of the performances were solid and likeable enough, although I'm not sure why a couple of the peripheral characters were introduced at all and the odd moment felt like padding that didn't have much to do with anything.

Not an all out action-packed gorefest, but I found it restrained, believable and nasty and I think there's a lot to be said for accepting what your monetary limits are going to be and doing a great job within them rather than trying to achieve too much and winding up with halfarsed, amateurish looking effects, dodgy sets and so on. Unmissable for anybody in the teaching profession :green:.
