Robert De Niro,
The true story of a young teacher who fights against the board of education in her bid to teach underprivileged kids in a Harlem school the beauty of music through the violin. In her struggle she loses everything as the system comes down on her with all their might but her determination for the kids happiness helps her to battle back with wonderfully inspirational results.Written by
I liked this movie very much, it reminded me of one of my very favorite movies, Mr. Holland's Opus. Meryl Streep is excellent, again, as is Aidan Quinn and the actors playing her sons. Too bad Angela Bassett and Gloria Estefan didn't have more to do in the movie. I enjoyed the story very much and I would not be surprised to see Ms. Streep rack up another Oscar nomination.
