Afterschool Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Violence and voyeurism lurk beneath the surface of life at an exclusive prep school in this independent drama. Robert ([[Performer~P587044~Ezra Miller~ezramiller]]) is a high school student who has made a hobby out of dulling his senses with violent pornography that he finds on the Internet. While Robert doesn't have many friends, he does have a habit of documenting the habits of his classmates with a digital video camera, and he happens to be on hand when two girls from his class succumb to fatal drug overdoses. As the deaths leave the school's faculty at a lost for what to do and send many of the students into a state of depression and denial, Robert finds himself becoming even more alienated from the world around him. Afterschool was the first feature film from writer and director [[Performer~P440218~Antonio Campos~antoniocampos]], and was screened as part of the "Un Certain Regard" series at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
