ROCKET SCI­ENCE (M)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

Hop­scotch

★★★ An in­ter­est­ing look be­hind the scenes of Amer­ica’s thriv­ing high­school de­bat­ing scene. The cen­tral fig­ure is Hal (Reece Thomp­son), a tongue-tied type with

a ma­chine-gun stam­mer when un­der pres­sure. A per­fectly pleas­ant blend of dead­pan, nerd-ish com­edy and low­im­pact drama, typ­i­cal of many an Amer­i­can in­die flick in the wake of Wes An­der­son’s tem­plate-set­ting clas­sic Rush­more.
