Parker arrives in a poor rural township to begin a new job as a teacher at the local school. He appears to be of unimpeachable character, yet almost immediately he begins an affair with a student, 16-year-old Nolitha. Soon the true nature of this seemingly mild-mannered man is revealed: Parker is a bloody psychopath. Of Good Report is a stylishly made, provocative and disturbing noirish thriller that boldly challenges the usual representations of South Africa’s contemporary reality.
