Irish documentary In Loco Parentis has been met with rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, since airing for the first time last weekend.

The documentary made by Neasa Ní Chianáin and David Rane follows dedicated teachers John and Amanda Leyden, as they run the Headfort Boarding School in Kells, Co. Meath.

The informative picture has been reviewed by many, with The Film Stage calling it “a warm piece of cinema” and as having “moments of rich beauty.” While IndieWire hailed the film as “delicately executed in every department.”

Overall, In Loco Parentis has been deemed more than worthy to come up against major American and European films at the festival, which is taking place in Utah at the moment.

We can’t wait to see it.
