"Palme d'Or winner Laurent Cantet returns with a drama that throws together disparate aspiring writers in a film that suggests debate can be as exciting as action. Deft handheld camerawork by Pierre Milon ('Entre les murs') captures the jostling tensions between a group of antsy teenagers, and the teacher who guides them." (The Guardian)
