Between Wall Street and its crowded avenues, New York City is a pressure-driven place where there are demands on people to get ahead. But its not just the MBAs who are under stress--it is also the parents who are trying to get their young children into the citys most exclusive pre-schools and put them on the road to success. This sometimes hilarious, often insightful documentary captures the struggles of five New York families as they try to get their children accepted to the nursery school that will help them get into the best kindergartens, elementary schools, high schools, universities, and jobs.
"Delicately sidestepping the minefields of entitlement and class fear, the filmmakers keep the tone breezy and the view micro."
