FILM: Bad Genius (Free student screening)
Feb 7-10 | 2017 | Thailand | Nattawut Poonpiriya | Thai language | 130 min
Lynn is a brilliant young woman who earns a scholarship to an expensive private school. When her artistic friend Grace asks for some help on an exam, the pair devise a brilliant scheme in which Lynn basically starts a business where she’s the brains for a bunch of spoiled rich kids willing to pay. Based on true events, this is a very smart film, one in which a young woman learns how difficult it is to overcome societally constructed injustices, but most of all, Bad Genius is fun, crisp, and consistently entertaining. 2018 Asian Film Awards: Best Newcomer and Screenwriter; 2017 Fantasia Film Festival: Best Film, Director, Asian Feature, and Innovative Feature.
