- 2 hr 8 min
The Class is a French film from 2008 that tells the story of a middle-school class in a poorer area of Paris. Based on an autobiographical novel, the author of that novel plays a fictionalized version of himself, while his students are played by actual French middle-schoolers playing characters of their own. The movie explores not only the cultural and racial divisions that are unique to France, but also the common challenges faced by teachers and students in classrooms all over the world.
