Pat Conroy, an ambitious, slightly rebellious idealistic teacher accepts Bennington county, SC's school board superintendent's offer to teach the all-black kids of the pauper fishery community on Yamacrew Island. Staffless 'head' mistress Brown incarnates stupidity and blind rule obedience, her didactic skills consisting in scolding and spanking her students. Pat moves heaven and earth to motivate and educate, but after finally getting through to pupils and parents is refused contract renewal by the arch-conservative authorities. Written by
This movie was amazing! I'm a college freshman and I happened to turn on the TV because i was bored after completing my homework, and saw the previews for this movie that was coming up next. I was awestruck by the preview and had to watch it. It is now my favorite movie! I can't believe I almost sat here on my computer all night- I would've totally missed out! This movie made me cry at least 5 times! the actors and actresses were amazing! I had no idea that this movie was also a book, or that it was remade, but I was totally impressed with it! i will definitely buy this movie! I had gone on a missions trip to Honduras this past summer (2005) and we stayed and worked at a school, and this movie really reminded me of the school children and their imaginations and joy in learning!
