Appearing to imitate Disney's successful High School Musical franchise and the award-winning TV series Glee -- neither of which I have watched (I'm more of a Dr. Horrible kind of guy) -- Chalat Sriwanna directs After School, a musical about high schoolers who achieve fame with their rock band. They break into song-and-dance routines and fall in and out of love.
The cast is headed by the busy Apinya Sakuljaroensuk -- also in theatres in 32 Thunwa -- with Atiwit “Kirin” Iamyodsib, Nattapong Chartpong (one of the comic foursome from 4bia and Phobia 2), model Arisara Tongborisut, Pornrawi Anantakun and French-Thai model-actor Louis Hess D'Alzon.
After School (After School วิ่งสู่ฝัน, After School Wing Soo Fun) also stars the classic red Chevy convertible that was used in a game of chicken in Ahimsa: Stop to Run. They didn't crash it after all.
The trailer is at YouTube or you can watch it below. After School opens in Thai cinemas this week.
