Kaspar and class pushover Joosep are 16 and life in high school isn’t easy. Kaspar unintentionally defends Joosep against the bullying of his classmates, but every time Kaspar tries to help him, it backfires. Their classmates are relentless, invoking shocking consequences.
Following in the footsteps of Gus Van Sant’s Elephant, The Class looks at the origins of a violent school tragedy, opting for a powerfully realistic approach. Not holding back on the viciousness of bullies, this often disturbing drama makes for an uncomfortable but deeply rewarding watch.
