The new trailer for Hugh Jackman starrer ensemble drama and comedy – Bad Education lays the accents — and the financial scandal.

Hugh Jackman plays the lead in the actual fact-based film as Frank Tassone, who takes over a Long Island school district with his assistant superintendent, Pam Gluckin (Allison Janney). Together, the duo buils the district into one of the nation’s best, with record college admissions and increasing area property values until a threatening embezzlement scheme to topple their creation.

Mike Makowsky (Reed Morano’s I Think We’re Alone Now) wrote the script for the movie, which was directed by Cory Finley (Thoroughbreds) and premiered to positive reviews out of the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival. Janney shared with reporters that she used her assistant’s mother as partial inspiration for the dutiful Long Island accent she uses in the movie.

“She has a perfect [accent],” Janney said of her assistant’s mom, adding that she picked up bits and pieces of the dialect from her grandparents while growing up. “I was like ‘Call your mother, I need to talk to her,’ and just listen to her … I love doing accents, as challenging [as they can be], it’s a lot of fun.”

Bad Education is also starring Ray Romano, Geraldine Viswanathan, Alex Wolff, Catherine Curtin, and Annaleigh Ashford. The film premieres April 25 on HBO. Watch the full trailer above.
