Cameron's high school English teacher Howard Brackett is overjoyed when Cameron wins the award and mentions Howard's contribution in his acting life. That joy turns to horror when Cameron mentions to the worldwide audience that Howard is gay, especially horrific to Howard as he is engaged to fellow teacher Emily Montgomery, a woman with self-esteem issues as she had battled weight issues most of her life before she lost seventy-five pounds for the wedding. Howard's life is totally disrupted as Hollywood media descends on Greenleaf in order to get Howard's story. The rest of Greenleaf also openly wonders if Howard is indeed gay, as he exhibits many stereotypical gay tendencies, such as being neat, and loving music, dancing, poetry and Barbra Streisand. His...

19 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We all know the story about how Rawley Farnsworth (Tom Hanks' high school drama teacher who Hanks thanked in his acceptance speech at the 1994 Oscar telecast) was the genesis for Kevin Kline's role. But although he provided the idea behind the character, the character as written in the film is not based on Farnsworth himself.

The name, the quirky character traits, the Shakespeare lectures, the bicycle, the Midwestern background (Farnsworth was from Oakland CA), the sports coach connection all come from a long term USC theater professor--who later dyed his hair and then let it grow in order to disassociate himself from the Howard Brackett character.
