Bad Education gives Hugh Jackman his most challenging acting assignment. Playing a narcissist school administrator gone bad gives him a chance to turn in the best performance of his acclaimed career. He holds us in the palm of his hands with each nuanced look and his descension into hell. Allison Janney is exceptional as his partner in crime. This based on a true story is a gripping two-hour movie that could easily have been a limited six-part series. This rewarding HBO movies is an unexpected surprise.
