  A lotta learning
  Today Magnolia Pictures and Soilsiú Films productions are delighted to announce that its feature documentary School Life co-directed by Neasa Ní Chianáin and David Rane will be released into UK cinemas from 13th October on the back of a successful and critically acclaimed release in the US. The film was an audience favourite at Sundance Film Festival this year.

A funny and yet poignant observational documentary, School Life follows two 'prep school' teachers, John and Amanda Leyden, who have become legends teaching Reading, 'Rithmetic and Rock 'n' Roll to young pupils at Headfort, an enchanting 18th Century Hogwarts-like boarding school - the last of its kind in Ireland. The pace at the school is hectic and the mood infectious as this eccentric, chain-smoking, and very droll British couple, who have lived and taught for 46 years at Headfort, work their magic in hilarious fashion on fertile young minds. The film reflects a unique kind of warmth and fondness that existed between tutor and ward in years gone by, a genuine love of all that makes childhood so precious. But, in School Life, for both the pupils, moving on from the last days of their childhood, and the teachers, facing the end of their careers, leaving is the hardest lesson to learn. The trailer is above.
