USA | 108 min | PG-13 | BluRay | Dir. Richard Linklater After being fired from his own band, guitar player Dewey Finn needs to raise some money for his rent and bills. When his friend and school teacher Ned Schneebly is called for temporary work at an expensive private school, Dewey pretends to be Ned and accepts the job. He finds talented young musicians in his class, and decides to form a rock band with the students and win a competition called "Battle of the Bands." (IMDb) "The School Of Rock is more satisfying than a crunching power chord. A raucous crowd pleaser with a pumping soundtrack, some awe inspiringly talented kids, and perfect comic performances. Charming." -Chris Hewitt (Empire)   All free events sponsored by WUD Film Committee are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
