The latest episode of CinemAddicts has us spotlighting some of April’s top releases (Avengers: Infinity War, A Quiet Place) and offering up a preview of some of the top films coming out this month. One flick that is definitely worth a watch is the first rate teen comedy Class Rank, which is directed by veteran actor Eric Stoltz (Mask, Rob Roy).
The narrative centers on Veronica (Olivia Holt), an ambitious student who believes her dreams of attending Yale are ruined after receiving a #2 high school class ranking. Veronica hatches a plan to have a fellow classmate named Bernard (Skyler Gisondo) run for the local school board in an attempt to get rid of the ranking system. Bruce Dern (Nebraska) co-stars as Bernard’s slightly cantankerous yet ultimately genial grandfather, with Kristin Chenoweth playing Veronica’s mom.
Class Rank hits theaters, On Demand and digital services on May 11, and it’s a well written story that’s filled with first rate performances (Gisondo and Holt also have natural chemistry, which is a huge plus). Take a listen to CinemAddicts below as we review this film and a host of others!
