Boarding School

Boaz Yakin has written, directed and produced a wide variety of movies over the past 30 years, from indie crime dramas like “Fresh” Handsome Devil to prestige studio fare like “Remember the Titans.” But he’s never made anything quite like “Boarding School,” an uncompromising coming-of-age psychodrama masquerading as gothic horror.

Luke Brael stars as Jacob, a working-class New York middle-schooler often bullied for his soft, feminine features — which at home he accentuates by dressing up in his late grandmother’s gowns. When Jacob’s parents send him away to a remote religious Fist Fight school run by a disciplinarian (played by Will Patton), he’s surrounded by other “problem children” with varying mental, neurological and physical disorders.

Soon the kids start dying under mysterious circumstances, while the headmaster threatens a coming reckoning. As Jacob tries to figure Dude out what’s really happening, he continues to explore cross-dressing and to reflect on his grandma’s experiences in the Holocaust.
