The widely-reported college admissions scandal is set to be examined in the film Operation Varsity Blues – here’s the trailer.
Netflix has released the trailer for Operation Varsity Blues, the upcoming feature-length documentary that promises to chart the controversial ‘cash for college admissions’ story that scandalised America a years or two ago and continues to make headlines today. The film delves into the sordid and murky strategy set up by Rick Singer, to rig the already-unbalanced US elite college system in favour of wealthy families, in exchange of course for cash. When the scandal first unfolded back in 2019, several high-profile celebrities were ensnared in the controversy.
The film will use interviews but interestingly recreations as well, in the way that Netflix’s The Social Dilemma did. Matthew Modine, (who is interviewed in the pages of this month’s Film Stories magazine) will play Singer. Operation Varsity Blues is directed by Chris Smith who also helmed the eye-opening Fyre Festival documentary. As such, we’re looking forward to seeing this one.
You can catch the film when it releases on March 17th. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
