Schoolboy Jerôme Höffner, a brilliant nerd, is despised and pestered by his 'cool' classmates, except assertive immigrant Said, who protects him. Foppish mother Debbie Höffner's cool latest lover Marco Schmitz teaches his 'stepson' to fight back against bullies, but breaking Jan's nose in self-defense, Jerôme is forced in therapy with a child psychologist, who finds him a genius and recommends a mensa boarding school, but he willfully scores average on tests, fearing Debbie can't cope alone, until her clumsy attempts to offer enrichment privately frustrate him enough to visit, with Said, Dr. Kleybold's IQ school, which proves most tempting.

I rarely give 10 stars, but this was a very good film in my opinion!
5 June 2018 | by vetrasabineSee all my reviews

The first thing I noticed in the film - how good the little Maximilian Ehrenreich plays. He previously had looked into the ways talented kids might react to different situations in comparison to, so to say, 'normal' kids. I never leave reviews, however, his talent inspired me, he really played his role remarkably - I believed his character every second. His mother has a lovely character, too, I'm sure lots of mothers are able to relate - worried about their kid being bullied at school and just wanting them to be, again, "normal", do sports with friends, socialise etc. At the end of the day - why would it ever matter what the parents want? Then it's a matter of stepping over one's pride and letting it go, realising what's actually good for your kid. I loved the way the film creators presented this struggle between a mother and her child.
