Movie review: ‘The First Grader’


Tired of mindless blockbusters and soulless art house films? Watch "The First Grader," the uplifting true story of Kimani Maruge, a Kenyan tribesman who decides to enroll in school for the first time at the age of 84. Maruge was denied an education when the country was under British colonial rule. As a young man, he would fight for Kenyan independence as a Mau Mau freedom fighter. Those unfamiliar with Kenya's recent history will witness the country's own struggle, albeit in shorthand. Rated PG-13. -- Bob Tremblay/ GHNS
