This documentary about the college admissions scandal doesn’t pull any punches (nor should it) in examining the ins and outs of the famous case, the key players, and the culture that pretty much willed it to happen. The always-great Matthew Modine plays sleazy lynchpin Rick Singer in reenactments of the nefarious goings-on (transcribed directly from FBI wiretaps), and interviews with key players (on both sides of the law) help round-out the film.

4/5 stars
