"An engrossing, often witty meditation on what it means to grow and evolve."—Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"An engaging film that will be best enjoyed if one restrains from searching the plot twist online before watching."—Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times

"...[My Old School] captures a feeling that’s far more relatable: the fun of gathering all your old friends together to discuss the wildest thing that happened during your time at school."—Caroline Siede, Fox 10 Phoenix

In 1993, 16-year-old Brandon Lee enrolled at Bearsden Academy, a secondary school in a well-to-do suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. What followed over the next two years would become the stuff of legend. Brandon had been privately tutored in Canada while he accompanied his mother, an opera diva, on tour before her tragic death. The preternaturally bright student surprised teachers by blazing toward his goal of entering medical school, displaying a wealth of knowledge beyond his years. Brandon found friends despite his initial awkwardness, taking bullied students under his wing, introducing classmates to seminal retro bands, and even starring in the school's production of South Pacific. But then his unbelievable secret was revealed.
