My Old School

Directed by Jono McLeod
UK
104 minutes
All Ages
A mind-blowing stranger-than-fiction story from ’90s Glasgow with Scotland’s Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) bringing this unbelievably twisted tale to life.
In 1993, Brandon Lee enrolled at Bearsden Academy, a secondary school in an upmarket suburb of Glasgow. A bright kid with a tragic background and a taste for retro music, nothing untoward you’d imagine… Lee is at the heart of this documentary, but he didn’t want to show his face, so director Jono McLeod used Cumming to lip synch to a recording of Lee. That’s just one of the innovative ways, along with animation and archival footage, that McLeod reveals this unbelievable story. If you have British roots, you may be familiar with this story that shocked the nation, if you don’t… we won’t spoil it for you! The truth will have you gasping in your seat!
Watching My Old School is like listening to a bunch of friends tell you about the wildest memory they share, and with flashbacks rendered in animation that recalls ’90s shows like Daria, it’s a romp of a period piece, too.
