"Top Hollywood star Michelle Pfeiffer is the driving force behind this gripping and uplifting smash hit! Based on an incredible true-life story - Pfeiffer is former U.S. Marine LouAnne Johnson, a first-time high school teacher assigned to a class of tough-but-smart inner city students. When conventional methods fail to reach them, the feisty Ms. Johnson tries the unconventional - defying the rules and creating her own curriculum! In the process, she instills a new self-confidence in her students - motivating them towards their greatest potential."--Container.

Great story about the power to turn lives around when someone (a teacher in this case) believes in these lost kids. ALL kids should have who believes in them and will fight for them & their chance to make something of themselves.

Michelle Pfeiffer had a hard time trying to convince me that having been a Marine and now teaching inner city with all those derelicts, she easily cowered in the beginning. Her voice was terrible, absolutely terrible. No wonder those students were eating her alive. It wasn't until she developed some kind of back bone that she was able to get through to them and actually develop a rapport.
The principal was an absolute joke with his rigidity of knocking on the door. Did he forget where he was teaching? That was almost laughable.
