Lucinda Rosenfeld's "Class"

Lucinda Rosenfeld is the author of the novels The Pretty One, What She Saw..., Why She Went Home, and I'm So Happy For You. Her fiction and essays have appeared in the New York Times, The New Yorker, Slate, the Wall Street Journal,, and other publications. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and two daughters.

Here Rosenfeld dreamcasts an adaptation of her latest novel, Class (a satire about public school, parenting, and the liberal bubble):
Jennifer Connelly as conflicted late-life mother and hunger charity fundraiser Karen Kipple.

Rihanna as Karen's best mom friend, Louise Bailey.

Mark Ruffalo as Karen's housing lawyer husband, Matt McClelland.

Ewan McGregor as hedge fund billionaire, Clay Phipps.

Gwyneth Paltrow as PTA President, Susan Bordwell or Karen's nemesis, Laura Collier.

Tina Fey as April Fishbach.

And Viola Davis as elementary school principal, Regina Chambers.

I'm not up on child actors, so unfortunately I can't make suggestions for the "third grade" cast (Ruby, Jayyden, Maeve, Mia, Charlotte, etc).

Dream director would be Ang Lee or Nicole Holofcener.
