About the Movie
Indianapolis has one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the country. Victims of circumstance and a broken system, Greg, Melissa, and Shynika are optimistic that they don’t need to be on the wrong side of statistics. Emmy award-winning director Andrew Cohn’s absorbing documentary observes their individual pursuits going back to school, fraught with the challenges of daily life and the broader systemic roadblocks faced by many Americans as they strive to improve their lives in the face of adversity.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A movie about large setbacks and small triumphs, and the grit that takes you from one to the other.
Fresh: Cohn's slickly edited verite-style storytelling lets each person's humanity rise to the top, just enough to mix expected poignancy with a simple clarity about the struggles of low-income, opportunity-challenged souls.
Fresh: Feeling particularly relevant these days because of the ever-growing obstacles faced by less-educated people struggling for economic gains, the moving film depicts the American dream in action.
Fresh: As an introduction to its arresting, charismatic subjects, Night School is invaluable.
