Cannes 2016: 'The Student' Review

One of the nicer discoveries of this year's Cannes is The Student, a Russian satire in which a Bible-thumping teenager turns his school upside down with his religious fervor. It's a pointed commentary about how some people use faith as a weapon to forward their regressive agendas. The Student is funny, but it's also very angry. My review is live at Paste.
