This movie is much more than the famous early 21st century scandal and the actors chosen to portray their respective roles are undoubtedly best placed in every moment.
For me, this movie was not just about embezzlement of funds but more than that, the two minutes of agony that Dr. Frank Tassone(Hugh Jackman) had against the system and the world was the highlight. Although shown as a negative character, I could empathise with the actions taken by a public school teacher and how frustrating it is to be a part of a system where people instead of appreciating their mentors, forget and move on in their lives.
The movie is about the mindset that the people in public service develop over-time, which is what compels them to do things that even they consider heinous. A frsutrated person tries to reason out with himself that his actions are justified and this is what drills him deeper into an abyss of negligence from which it is unable to crawl out.
It all comes down to the role that we are expected to play in this world. We often forget the small, yet significant contribution of some people in our lives. That is why we should appreciate the people who help us in becoming who we are today, otherwise the other Dr. Frank-s won’t have an option but to repeat the history again and again
Do their names escape you?
This film is based off a true story of Embezzlement at the New York’s Roslyn School and the drama is a little slow paced and predictable. It is however interesting to see the concept of the scam and how the people got away with the crimes they committed for so long.
The film is convincing with Hugh Jackman leading from the front and strongly supported by Ray Romano and Allison Janney. We can see how truly easy it is for people to abuse our modern employment systems for their own personal gain. Of course this job relies heavy with the assistance of a team working tirelessly together rather than just the Individual.
I have always found these types of stories and films extremely compelling. As I truly enjoy hearing the backstory of people, how, why and what inspired them to get to the point in their lives where they decided to do what they did.
I wouldn’t say this was an original story and that it blew me away. But it is fascinating and has a range of different personalities each with their own motives.
