This probably would work better for a young audience, who can relate to school, tests, and the stereotypes depicted here.
It is basically a tension building project with a few side annotations: daughter and father reconciling and our heroine coming clean.
Left out to dry is a victim — someone they tricked and beat into the conspiracy and who now at the end will have his life ruined.
A strange film by any measure. The most interesting for me is that in this bucket of thin stereotypes they throw a Sydney test proctor who is every bit as evil and threatening as any ‘Die Hard’ villain. His heart pumping drive is what makes this tense.
