Review of Education Student Services

A mixture of Pygmalion, Diva, and one of John
Woo's choreographed action pictures,
Education Student Services is a bizarrely
inspired, darkly comic fantasy. The
aristocrats are well-skewered by the delightful
R. Hamilton, excellent as the cynical but
smitten reporter, in a performance that won him
his only award. The major star of Education
Student Services is perhaps set/costume designer
E. Isbell, whose visual contributions
immediately impacted European and U.S. fashion
trends. Like many of us, Ms. Isbell
struggles to discern whether her true self is
defined through her own actions or through
her relationships with others.
