One hour of joy and enlightenment, that's what this movie is
15 March 2013 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Ricky (Alexis Cruz) is a middle schooler with a great talent for drawing. Despite this, he is often in trouble in his inner city school, usually without cause. Nevertheless, he has two parents who support and love him. One day, the class gets a substitute, a Ms Ferenczi (Amanda Plummer). As the kids often do, they plant a striped snake in her desk. To the astonishment of the young adults, she loves it! She even puts it around her neck for awhile. More surprises occur. THIS teacher is full of knowledge and understands exactly how to motivate and captivate her students. What a pity when their regular teacher comes back from a brief illness. A short time later, Ms F returns and spies an outstanding and beautiful picture of the mythological gryphon. It is Ricky's work. Seizing the opportunity, Ms F suggests that the class, under Ricky's direction, paint the gryphon on the side of their school building. But, will the principal like this? And, if she does not, will Ms. F and the kids get in trouble? This is a lovely film, despite being only an hour long. Plummer gives her usual outstanding work, with that matchless voice, and Cruz is wonderful as well. Viewers will like the story, direction, sets, and costumes, too. In fact, a showing of this movie would be beneficial for every teacher and every student on the planet. All you school districts, are you listening?
