Reviewer Ed Farolan

Intriguing true story of a public school embezzlement scandal involving Long Island (Roslyn, NY) Superintendent Frank Tassone (Hugh Jackman) and his assistant Pam Gluckin (Allison Janney), racking up more than $11 million in personal expenses.

Excellent acting by Hugh Jacknan who´s won a number of awards as an actor. A truly versatile actor from playing Wolverine for a number of films, and now, a completely different role as a homosexual embezzler.

Well, you get caught eventually, and from Wikipedia, we read that they were both jailed for 10 years, but then, received pensions of more than $100,000 a year when they were released. What an irony, eh?
