It's a good movie, with a good direction, and also good actors. The major character is an idealistic teacher who becomes the principal of a problematic school. His ideas "torn the town apart". He brings some revolutionary changes in the teaching methods that searching for the intellectual side of the stundents. In the line of Dead Poets Society.
