High School? Turns Out It Is 'Rocket Science'

Jeffrey Blitz's new film Rocket Science is a partly autobiographical coming-of-age tale about a teenager who joins the high school debate team.

Blitz won the Dramatic Directing Award at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival; he also directed 2002's Oscar-nominated documentary Spellbound, along with several episodes of the hit NBC television series The Office.
