Drama/Horror NR. In Thailand, the young Ton Chatree is sent to a boarding school by his father to study harder and have less entertainment with television. Once in the school, Ton feels outcast and misses his family and friends. He becomes scared with the ghost stories his new schoolmates tell about a boy that died in the swimming pool and a young pregnant woman that committed suicide. He becomes a close friend of the also lonely boy Vichien, and later Ton realizes that Vichien is the boy that drowned in the swimming pool, and his death repeats every night. Ton tries to find a way to help his friend to rest in piece. I was looking forward to seeing this film as I had seen some very good promotional material of this but I can fair warn everyone now this is not your typical Asian ghost story filled with scary and hair-raising moments. No, this is more a drama, a coming of age film about a boy that learns a life's lesson, one that will make him better man someday. The film deals with a lot of issues that slowly unravel as the film moves along, I will not mention these as anything I would say here might ruin the wonderful experience you will have watching this film. The movie itself is beautifully shot and the cast is fantastic. The story moves along at a great pace and the direction is top rate. Dorm is a coming of age drama with a dose of horror tossed in and a little humor as well to lighten the mood but together it makes for one of the better, more well rounded films in it's genre to come along in some time. I highly recommend it to anyone that just loves a good movie, this was certainly a surprise but a pleasant one. Released by Tartan Video. ***** Of Of *****
