Description This series portrays life at Rawley Summer Academy, an elite school in Connecticut where boys with a bright Ivy League future spend the summer industriously in classes and rowing training on the lake. It's mainly told from the viewpoint of Will Krudski, a gifted, genuinely inquisitive student and future writer, who feels guilty having cheated at the entry exams. His roommate, Scout Calhoun, is a school legacy who makes an effort to become friendly with some underprivileged local kids and falls in love with the daughter of a garage owner who turns out to be family. Most of his classmates are golden spoon boys, but still have their problems, among each-other, at home and sometimes with the locals. Actually Jacqueline 'Jake' Pratt is a girl pretending to be a boy as the only way to get in, causing great confusion for Hamilton, the school dean's son, who begins to fall for her.

    haha, this is clever. thisis YA for the first half and it used the l word and another show to put together scenes from another show and you can even here jenny's voice. this isnt true but its really clever.
  • nabs0214 2009-09-18 14:11:09
    aren't some scenes from l word?
  • rubietheone3 2009-07-17 10:52:07
    -i don't know the first song, but if you like this style of music, the opening is very similar to "by this river" by Brian Eno. -second song is "black lines to battlefields" by Acceptance. -last romantic song is "Star" by Calandar girl. un ptit conseil, sur youtube, si tu veux qu'on te réponde essaie d'écrire en anglais, surtout sur une vidéo en anglais ! hope it helped.

    The Producers (2005)

    New York, 1959. Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway, but now all his shows close on opening night. Things turn around when he's visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom, who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers who can only make flops: raise far more money than you need, then make sure the show is despised. No one will be interested in it, so you can pocket the surplus. To this end, they produce a musical called Springtime for Hitler written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken....
