Booker High has fallen under the draconian leadership of Principal Weller (Julie Bowen), who is systemically revoking the rights of the schools students in her effort to become School Superintendent. Fortunately, English teacher Mr. Drucker (Malik Yoba), a former documentary filmmaker specializing in social issues, is encouraging a small group of students to change the world. Most inspired by Drucker is Holden Donovan (Gregory Smith of TVs EVERWOOD), who uses a talent show as a platform to lambaste Wellers suppression of free speech. His stunt gets him expelled, but he isnt deterred from haunting the school--with some help from a similarly determined group of free-thinkers--and seeing that Weller never makes it to the school board. Taking the average teen flick template and twisting it into something smarter, Josh Stolbergs funny, good-natured KIDS IN AMERICA provides the requisite amount of sex jokes, but makes a clear case for freedom of expression and tolerance. Unabashedly critical of the Bush administration, it also sees Weller cite the Patriot Act as a defence for ignoring students rights and expelling two gay students for kissing. Paying homage to classic teen films and using interviews with real kids who upheld free speech in their schools to replace the usual closing credits outtakes, KIDS IN AMERICA challenges the ordinary.
