#631: Reading Between the Lines

October 6, 2011

Notes from the Manager

In case you're not familiar with some or all of these movies, they all deal with a teacher making some profound impact on some kids.

October Sky is about science teacher (Laura Dern) inspiring some kids to play with rockets, Freedom Writers is basically a remake of Dangerous Minds without Coolio (and with Hilary Swank as Michelle Pfeiffer), and Stand and Deliver is about Commander Adama and the crew of his spaceship leading a small fleet of survivors in search of a fabled refuge known as Earth. Or something like that. I haven't seen it since I was a kid, so my memory of it could be a little fuzzy.
