This wonderful film engages you on every level. The story is amazing but true, and besides getting caught up in the story arc, you will get equally caught up in the kids and their teacher. If you don't know this film, definitely give it a shot.

I originally was not going to watch this movie, as I had only taken it out for my mom to watch. But as the movie progressed I found that I could not stand to look away from the movie, and it really captured my attention. Such an inspirational story, it's hard to imagine that it could really be true. 5 star rating for the true heart put into it -though perhaps the casting of Logan Huffman did affect my review.
