Robert De Niro, Ed Norton and Milla Jovovich star in this drama thriller about a convicted arsonist trying to manipulate a parole officer with the help of his beautiful wife
Sidney Poitier stars in this seminal, sentimental tale of an inspirational teacher in an inner city school.
Poitier gets a job in a failing school in inner-city London, and sets about scrapping the prescribed curriculum for his own brand of 'survival training'. The class includes Geeson - whose passion makes it to the title; Chirs Chittell, a yobbo just gagging to be reformed by Poitier's hard love; Roberts, the cocky classroom leader; and Lulu. Yes, Lulu - 30 years before she washed up on the TV lottery show, considered a serious contender. The film has gone in and out of fashion, but it's old enough now to return to it with a clear eye, and see the strength beneath the kooky sentimentality.
Sentimental and unrealistic it may be but undeniably influential, and still worth a watch if only to see Lulu and Poitier in their heyday.
