Faith Family Friends Forgiveness
4 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you never seen "Mr Holland's Opus" then your in luck. If you then you know that this film seems like a re-make but what hell it has Andy Griffith in it. Also it really hits home that "Art Programs in schools" are needed and are in danger. (My favorite Scene in the whole film has to do when a mother says her son might be good at sports but he can play this tuba).

During the holiday season, Bethlehem School goes under review by a stern school administrator Cal Peterson (Gerald McRaney), sent to eliminate programs to save money and the school itself. Following long review, Cal decides to eliminate the music program led by music teacher Lily Waite (Naomi Judd). Cal is unaware that his teenage niece Fern (Alison Pill), whom he has been taking care of, has been changed by the music program. There are many sub-plots, including the hijinks of Jake Peterson (Andy Griffith). With a musical back ground, this film is unique in itself, it reaches out to the viewer not only through acting but through the joy of Christmas music, showing tradition in a new light, and showing that you are only as old as you feel.

This film is worth watching. Beware that the film is sold sometimes under the tile of "A Song For the Season".

Watch this film. It is worth watching. It is worth owning. It might even propel you into sending a letter to your favorite teacher..
