It could have been so much better given the topic. But it id held back by clichés, weak casting, and mediocre acting by some key characters. Not worth the time.

Funny, witty, poignant. Sandra Oh is incredible, as always, but the rest of the cast are wonderful too, especially the daughter Juju. It's a fast-paced, fun, and mostly light show that manages to weave in some heavy subjects without ever feeling depressing or a slog. A great (and subtly scathing) commentary not only on academia but institutions in general, as well as on generational differences, race and gender, and surviving in a landscape that's sometimes too quick to accuse instead of educate.

The Chair is too short to achieve all of its ambitions, but spot-on observations about academia and a sturdy ensemble led by an empathetic -- and hilarious -- performance from Sandra Oh ensure it's never less than watchable.
