The Screen Guide

KINGS OF BAXTER is an engaging, touching and at times funny documentary following juvenile justice detainees as they create a production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The film shadows passionate educators, James and Huw, and their struggle to get through to the boys, documenting Bell Shakespeare’s landmark education program in Frank Baxter Juvenile Detention Centre. Follow the boys beyond the bravado, fear and self-doubt, over three months of rehearsal, leading up to a final performance for friends, family and fellow-inmates.
