HIGH SCHOOL was a hit at the 19th Annual Philadelphia Film Festival where it had its East Coast Premiere on October 15, 2010 - A YEAR AND A HALF BEFORE IT COMES OUT IN THEATERS. If you saw it and loved it or if you missed out the first time, we're giving Members another chance to SEE IT FIRST!
The day after soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush, Adventureland) takes a hit of the chronic for the first time, his school principal (Michael Chiklis, "The Shield") and vice principal (Colin Hanks, King Kong) institute a zero tolerance drug policy and administers a mandatory drug test for all students. Henry has two options: fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Sean Marquette, 13 Going On 30) to beat the system. They steal a high powered ganja from law student-turned-drug-dealer Psycho Ed (Adrien Brody, Best Actor Academy Award winner for The Pianist) and spike the school's bake sale brownies, getting the whole school—faculty included—completely stoned out of their minds. But with the student body getting higher and higher with every brownie, and a pissed-off Psycho Ed on their tails for stealing his stash, they must find a way to keep their half-baked plan from going up in smoke.
