A list of movies this most reminded me of:
The Lord of the Flies
Triumph of the Will
My schools never put on Cats but I can cast each character with a specific theater kid I’ve known in the past and all the politics that went with each casting.

I can not give this any less than a perfect rating, I am a slave to this film and its music.
