But that wouldn’t give this movie any justice, not to mention Lulu’s song that goes with the movie.
I think every person who ever plans on becoming a teacher or counselor needs to see this. It exemplifies human beings that care about others no matter who they are or where they are in life, a quality I find overlooked in today’s society.
Nonetheless, a teacher located in the tough city of London, who hopes that treating them like adults will make them realize they are no longer children. I know that may seem vague and a very similar synopsis as Stand and Deliver (1998) or Freedom Writers (2007), but trust me this is very different and I actually admire this more.
I only wish they did a little more on Mr. Portier’s character. However, it is based on a true story adapted into a book ,which I unfortunately have yet to come across on.
Oh and of course I do enjoy the time and location of the film, but that goes for any film outside the U.S. I’m sure anyone would agree that watching a film not taking place where they are from, harbors that dream like quality. The theme is relatable but it feels like a distance dream.
