Mini Review - The First Grader
- Written by Matthew Toomey
The First Grader (out now) is based on a true story - an 84 year old from Kenya went to school for the first time and learned how to read. It's a nice, crowd pleaser but I couldn't help but feel it's been "sugar coated" for audiences. The conclusion (where everything wraps up far too neatly) is proof of that. Grade: B-.
