"Class of 1984" is a 1982 film that foresees the situation of many schools in the present day. The violence in the early 80´s seemed to be exaggerated but unfortunately has become reality. The performances are believable and the conclusion is satisfactory. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Os Donos do Amanhã" ("The Owners of Tomorrow")
