The Dirties: righting the wrongs of adolescence

Issue No. 2405

Capturing the spirit of bullying and fear among teachers and pupils, this revenge comedy sets out to right the wrongs of your adolescent years.

Matt and his best friend Owen set out to make a film of their terrorised lives at school in Toronto, Canada. They begin to think that they can use their movie to turn the tables on their enemies.

With naturalistic and improvised dialogue the mundane brutality of school life is left open for all to laugh at—while crying on the inside, of course.

The Dirties is directed by Matt Johnson and is out now.
