"Green is a classically inspiring teacher....ROCK SCHOOL forms an unlikely companion piece to ETRE ET AVOIR."

"Green's demagoguery and force-of-nature persona eat up the screen..."
The true story that inspired the 2003 Richard Linklater-Jack Black hit THE SCHOOL OF ROCK is shown in its real-life documentary form here. The Paul Green School of Rock Music in Philadelphia is showcased, inviting viewers to witness the unique personalities of Green and his rockin' students--who range in age from nine to 17. Musical talent abounds and the kids prove it when they travel to Germany and perform complex Frank Zappa tunes at the Zappanale festival.
