Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal

The documentary is about a notorious college admissions scandal of 2019. “Stranger things” actor Matthew Modine acts as William “Rick” Singer the conspiracy’s mastermind. Operation Varsity Blues recreates real wiretapped evidence of Singer’s conversations with successful families (for clarity, some scenes are “combined” or “edited”). Singer’s goal was to secure wealthy individuals’ “donations” to his “foundation,” the true purpose of which was to bribe university admissions officers on behalf of his clients and their children. The documentary follows Singer from his criminal beginnings to the aftermath of the Justice Department’s wide-ranging arrests in the titular bribery case.

Waffles (voiced by Michelle Zamora), and her small friend Mochi (voiced by Piotr Michael) guide audiences through this awe-inspiring and humorous world of new flavors and lively colors. The best friends travel the world to learn about the day’s fruit or vegetable — and then put it to use in the kitchen.
