Bad Education


When an old friend brings filmmaker Enrique Goded (Fele Martínez) a semi-autobiographical script chronicling their adolescence, Enrique is forced to relive his youth spent at a Catholic boarding school.

Weaving through past and present, the script follows a drag performer (Gael García Bernal) who reconnects with a grade school sweetheart. Spurred on by this chance encounter, the character reflects on her childhood sexual victimization and the trauma of closeting her sexual orientation. From two-time Academy Award-winner Pedro Almodóvar, Bad Education is an outrageous tale of desire, revenge, and murder.
