About the Movie
Olivia Holt, Skyler Gisondo, Kristin Chenoweth and Bruce Dern star in this quirky teen comedy about placement, politics and finding your voice. The only thing holding Veronica (Holt) back from her dream of attending Yale is her #2 high-school class ranking. So when she devises a plan to elect fellow teen Bernard (Gisondo) to the local school board and abolish the ranking system, their unorthodox efforts inspire everyone around them to see life and love in a whole new light.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Class Rank" is a late bloomer that takes time to find its footing, but once it does, it proves to be as stealthily likable as its characters.
Fresh: A teen comedy with heart.
Ranks In Last Place
PAINFULLY BAD. Like a bad Wes Anderson rip off student film.
Respect, Reward, and Challenges Among Social Awkwardness
This is a lovely film. I was so pleased that the main characters, both in high school, were smart, motivated, and willing to try and make a difference in their world, unlike most films portraying this age group. The supporting cast was superb, Bruce Dern, Kathleen Chalfant, and Kristin Chenoweth portrayed caring, kind, and quirky elderly who cared about the young people in their lives. It was delightful to see loving and respectful interaction between the generations. It's a sweet film, without guns and violence, these teens are considerate, learn to deal with disappointment, and don't feel entitled to what they want. This is a film that will resonate with the social awkwardness all of us have felt at one time or another as we were growing up and the challenge and reward of teen activism.
A marvelous and timely film
Class Rank is a smart, likable film. It seems only appropriate that it was released now, when students are again becoming more active in the political process. By no means is this a political film - instead it is a very funny story of two high-schoolers (and their families). The acting and writing are terrific. Skyler Gisondo and Olivia Holt are perfectly cast as the two teen stars, as are Bruce Dern, Kristin Chenoweth, and Kathleen Chalfant. Highly recommend this movie - and loved Eric Stoltz in cameo appearance!
