Home schooling and overprotective parents are given a hilarious, yet generous, going over in Kyle Rideout's disarming high-school comedy "Public Schooled". Educated in his garage by Claire (Judy Greer; Ant-Man, Archer), his fiercely enthusiastic mother, Liam (2017 TIFF Rising Star Daniel Doheny) is the quintessential uber-nerd, a wannabe physicist who idolizes Stephen Hawking and is about to take his equivalency exam and head off to Cambridge.

At the exam he spots Anastasia (Siobhan Williams), an enigmatic beauty who lost a leg to cancer. Instantly smitten, he changes his answers, hoping to flunk and have to redo his final semester in public school. In what follows, Liam is given a crash course in high-school dynamics, ranging from bullying to hallway flirting, as he timidly chases after Anastasia.
