Storyline

In a private school in the U.S. South, Mr. Sanders, a new choirmaster tries to reduce some of the prejudice and hostility of some of the students in his choir. Paul, a bully who feels he should be lead boy, is the worst offender. Taylor Bradshaw on the other hand is impressed by the music of Landy, a black boy, grandson of Zeke, the school caretaker. Zeke joins in some of the activities of the black community known as River Town. Sanders is also impressed by Landy's abilities and attempts to get him involved with the choir. A tragedy in the community brings the race issue to a head. Written by Jim Brawn <jim_brawn@amuc.mtroyal.ab.ca>

Trivia

When the music teacher covers for the boys who are out late, he tells the head of the school that it was a deer he saw in the bushes. The head then comments that there are herds of deer in that area. Berry College, where the movie was filmed, is in fact home to thousands of deer that wonder among the academic buildings and dormitories. See more »

perfect example of racism
18 August 2001 | by (newton, kansas) – See all my reviews

First of all, this film was very, very well done. The tension between the whites and the blacks is very realistic and you can literally feel the tension. The injustice done to the blacks is also very well done - it's not sugarcoated at any time.

The music was very well-done. The boys choir was very well-done (Can boys actually sing that high?) I found the blacks more interesting in their singing than the whites. While white people tend to have restrained singing, blacks take it all out and sing like singing was meant to be. The different organs used was interesting, too. While the boys choir used a traditional pipe organ, the blacks used a good, old-fashioned Hammond Organ for their accompaniment (very appropriate).

Although the ending was on the predictable side, it was still touching to see. This is another great family film and a good film to use in teaching children about the evils of racism and why it is to be avoided at all costs.
