Honor Student

U.S. | 2022 | Narrative
82 minutes

“Honor Student" is a provocative thriller about a student who holds a teacher hostage to prove he can teach America a lesson it will never forget. Jeremy Chue is a picture-perfect teenager. He is talented, has the perfect grades, a well-off family, and attends a prestigious Washington, D.C. private school. At least that is how he appears to others. After losing his twin brother in a mass shooting, the deeply troubled Jeremy takes matters into his own hands. The film provokes as it invites us to contemplate and discuss one of the most polarizing subjects in the United States – the right to bear arms. It is intended to be a call to action to invoke meaningful conversation in an effort to curtail gun violence. The film stars Kelly Jenrette (Amara, “All-American Homecoming”) and Hudson Yang (Eddie, “Fresh Off the Boat.”)
