“Progressively disturbing but not without moments of humour, joy and grace…” – The Hollywood Reporter
Anton and Misha are high school students enrolled in the so-called “corrections” class for students with disabilities within a large and harsh Russian suburban school where norm for acceptance includes playing chicken on the nearby railway line. Widely considered a doomed place for losers and outcasts, the “corrections” class is academically neglected and openly bullied by its peers. Enter new girl Lena, initially embraced by her new classmates, but when Lena and Anton get together the class dynamics dramatically change.
With an ensemble cast of experienced actors mixed with teenagers with disabilities, Corrections Class is an intense exploration of what it means to be a teenager, especially if you are different, yet it somehow remains a story of love, hope and new discoveries.
Loosely based on the book by author and family psychologist Ekaterina Murashova, Corrections Class was awarded Best Debut at Sochi’s Kinotavr festival and Best Film at Karlovy Vary East of West section.
