About the Movie
From the directors of LOST IN LA MANCHA comes THE BAD KIDS. Located in an impoverished Mojave Desert community, Black Rock Continuation High School is one of California’s alternative schools for students at risk of dropping out. Black Rock is their last chance. Part observational documentary and part coming-of-age drama, THE BAD KIDS chronicles one extraordinary principal’s mission to realize the potential of these students whom the system has deemed lost causes.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Bolstered by a confident fly-on-the-wall aesthetic and a suitably somber score by Michael Jacaszek, Fulton and Pepe locate both heartbreak and hope in their intertwined tales of people fighting to gain control of their (and others') lives.
Fresh: The verite approach in "The Bad Kids" gives viewers insight into a timely issue by literally putting a face on it.
Fresh: An insightful, affecting film that casts sympathetic light on a neglected educational sector.
Fresh: Desert flowers can be hard to spot, but are often distinctly beautiful, and The Bad Kids has them in focus.
I've been waiting a while to see this documentary...We need a LOT MORE TEACHERS like these for today's students. Spend less on war and more on education and the problems on today and tomorrow will be simply solved...
