"A cathartic class comedy for kids of all sizes, it's Bugsy Malone in rock pomp, Slacker meets Spy Kids" – Time Out
★★★★ – Empire
★★★★ – BBC Culture
Desperate for cash, wannabe rock star Dewey Finn (Jack Black) lands a job at a prep school, impersonating his best friend and ex-bandmate Ned Schneebly.
When he notices the kids he is teaching are bursting with musical talent, he takes their education in a new direction and turns the class into a rock band, unbeknownst to the rest of the school.
20 years since its release, School of Rock stands the test of time as a raucous, empowering comedy.
