The Perfect Gooseys by Andrew Mudge

A prep school for the junior elite has trouble accommodating an unconventional student.

George attends the competitive private school Auburn Academy, where he struggles to keep up with the other students.

Auburn is a harsh, even cruel, place, full of overachievers who are often mean to the boy — if they aren’t completely ignoring him. It doesn’t help that his dad is the school’s janitor, either, who picks up his son in a rickety old car everyday.

But George’s dad decides to stand up for his kid, showing just how far a parent will go to love and support their child — even if it means possible further humiliation.

Director Andrew Mudge has crafted a sweet, delightful dramedy full of genuine heart and compassion. Its charming quirks — minimal dialogue for the main characters, soaring score and meticulous and witty production design — never overwhelm the film.

“The Perfect Gooseys” wears its sincerity and emotion proudly, earning every second of its touching finale — and reminding us what really matters when it comes to what teach our families.
