Bad Education ★★★★

Just a reminder to never underestimate the steps people are willing to take to protect their own interests and/or to justify their clearly unlawful, immoral, and truly selfish actions.

Hugh Jackman is great here, suppressing his inner rage and sense of entitlement to the point where you almost feel for him as he attempts to wriggle his way out of a self-made mess. You also can't help but be disappointed in him, for ruining what seems to be a successful career as an educator by succumbing to avarice and jealousy by way of rationalizing away all the reasons to walk the line.
