A Class Act
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting movie & very informative. Starring Jay W. Jensen, a drama teacher with the Miami Public Schools, who according to this film, has been the inspirational driving force in the lives and careers of various actors, actresses, singers, directors,producers, movie stars, sports announcers, lawyers, doctors, teachers, and other professionals.

Jensen comes across as witty, inspirational, and slightly eccentric. However, the interviews with his former students, among them movie star, Andy Garcia, is very emotional and moving.

This is a movie which will have the public thinking, and hopefully acting to save drama studies throughout the nation.

Class Act is A Class Act.
