Episode 10! And they said it couldn’t be done. Actually, no one said it couldn’t be done — everybody’s been quite supportive. But I’m feeling extra dramatic today.

If you don’t have kids or live outside of New York, you hear about the nightmarish process that attends enrolling a child in the city’s better nursery schools, and greet the tales with something that borders between awe and disbelief. Well, doubt no longer — filmmakers Marc H. Simon and Matthew Makar have taken their lives in their hands (you try dealing with all those doting parents!) and delivered an incisive yet sympathetic look at a group of Manhattanites with understandably big plans for their kids, and the school administrators who have to deal with the fact that all New Yorkers have big plans for their kids.

Both directors were happy to talk about the project. Here’s the interview.
