A homage to "Chinatown" set in a Catholic high school, "Assassination of a High School President" is a witty film noir replete with surprising twists and duplicitous characters from first-time feature director Brett Simon. The film focuses on a bullied school newspaper reporter named Bobby (Reece Thompson, "Rocket Science") investigating the theft of the school's SAT exams. Also tangled in the web of conspiracy is the most beautiful but devious girl in school (Mischa Barton), the long-insane principal (Bruce Willis) and a host of other darkly comedic characters played by Michael Rappaport, Kathryn Morris, and Melonie Diaz.
