Strange. Good. Emotional. Thought provoking.

A lesson for teachers on all the things they should not do...ever.

Closed captioned only, no subtitles. Low key school drama on how to be an exemplified "good" teacher outside of the classroom. We need younger teachers who can connect with the students. In one of the emotional scenes, wonder if Rabe was talking about her mother Jill Clayburgh's 1978 film "An Unmarried Woman" (This woman. And all the other people on stage were... They were men, and they were... They were all terrible. And she was just... holding them all... together. Holding them... Holding them up.) Last, nice sound track of oldies.

This dramatic comedy film is about a high school English teacher that must chaperone a weekend field trip for a few of her students that are participating in a drama competition. What I really liked about this movie is how it was able to produce a lot of emotion and impressive moments, without even trying. The actors had incredible performances full of chemistry between one another, and although fairly monotone throughout, the movie maintained an ideal pace. I would rate this film 5/5 stars and recommend it to those who like quaint films full of talent and heart-warming moments. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Mildly entertaining coming of age story both for Miss Stevens and 3 of her students. Well-acted, but writing and direction a bit sub-par. Could see where this was going very early on, but stuck it out anyway.

yes, teachers and students have much to learn from each other, but I'm not sure there should be this much cross-over of their personal lives.

It was humiliating. And it sucks you worked so hard and forgot. But you know what else? It's gonna be okay. Not today maybe, or... Or even tomorrow. But there will be a day when this is okay.

I care a lot about my job. And I'm pretty good at it. I care that my students succeed. They graduate. The outside. Tell you what I don't care about is the inside. Their... silly little lies. That's the stuff that makes people think that it's hard. 'Cause that stuff is hard. You gotta stay outside.
-How do you stay outside when something-- I mean, these kids are right there in front of you.
I have my own.
