Recently Watched Movie


We watched an entertaining move from Netflix. In the vein of Mr Holland's Opus, but somewhat less believable, the charming French film The Chorus. Good for mid to older kids who can handle a few 'bad words' from the mouths of supposedly 'bad boys'.

The online description:
In this gentle French drama from first-time director Christophe Barratier, music teacher Clement Mathieu (Gerard Jugnot) lands a job at a boys' boarding school populated by delinquents and orphans -- and run by a martinet headmaster (Francois Berleand). Sensing potential in the rambunctious ruffians, Mathieu forms a choir to rein in his charges through the transforming power of song … even at the probable cost of his career.
Good movie for those who believe that all kids are essentially good at heart (not true, for the uninformed).
