    Noble But Flawed

    Exposing the urban realities of America is an essentially dirty business which Americans rather never hear about. This movie for instance is very noble in its attempt to depict the "ghetto life," but it falls short because many white teachers I have met in the inner-city are either cynical or racist or naive like the latter teacher in the movie. Many would never step inside those schools and let's be honest. The world is not fair and America is especially not fair in race relations even if we call ourselves the "land of the free, home of the brave." Hell, we have the incarceration rates the world has ever seen.

    Very good!

    Beautiful and talented Michelle Pfeiffer plays Lou Anne Johnson, an ex-Marine who has a degree in education and is teaching at an inner-city school. Her entire class is made up of thugs, social misfits and other assorted characters. At first they hate her with a passion, but through the use of small bribes and slight intimidation she finally gets them to open up to her while she opens their minds. This is a pretty good film that sometimes misses the mark. Michelle Pfeiffer's character does seem a little too soft to be an ex-Marine, but her performance is sincere, top-notch and very memorable. Also features memorable performances by Bruklin Harris, Renoly Santiago & George Dzundza as a fellow teacher. Overall this is a good fiilm with nice performances and a bit of humor which helps lighten the film's premise just a little. Recommended!
