OPERATION VARSITY BLUES: THE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL
Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal is a documentary film coming to Netflix on March 17, 2021. You can watch the trailer below.
The film is an examination that goes beyond the celebrity-driven headlines and dives into the methods used by Rick Singer, the man at the center of the shocking 2019 college admissions scandal, to persuade his wealthy clients to cheat an educational system already designed to benefit the privileged.
Using an innovative combination of interviews and narrative recreations of the FBI’s wiretapped conversations between Singer and his clients, Operation Varsity Blues offers a rare glimpse into the enigmatic figure behind a scheme that exposed the lengths wealthy families would go to for admission into elite colleges, and angered a nation already grappling with the effects of widespread inequality.
From Chris Smith and Jon Karmen, the filmmakers behind Fyre, and starring Matthew Modine as Rick Singer. Also starring are Josh Stamberg (Bill McGlashan), Wallace Langham (Gordon Caplan), and David Starzyk (Bruce Isackson).
