Storyline

In a private school in the U.S. South, Mr. Sanders, a new choirmaster tries to reduce some of the prejudice and hostility of some of the students in his choir. Paul, a bully who feels he should be lead boy, is the worst offender. Taylor Bradshaw on the other hand is impressed by the music of Landy, a black boy, grandson of Zeke, the school caretaker. Zeke joins in some of the activities of the black community known as River Town. Sanders is also impressed by Landy's abilities and attempts to get him involved with the choir. A tragedy in the community brings the race issue to a head. Written by Jim Brawn <jim_brawn@amuc.mtroyal.ab.ca>

Trivia

When the music teacher covers for the boys who are out late, he tells the head of the school that it was a deer he saw in the bushes. The head then comments that there are herds of deer in that area. Berry College, where the movie was filmed, is in fact home to thousands of deer that wonder among the academic buildings and dormitories. See more »

What a superb movie
6 February 2007 | by jbennett-29See all my reviews

How very pleased I was to come upon this film. I teach Elementary School music and this film really works well. I can show it during Black History Month to focus on the racial prejudice portrayed in the film. I can also use it to show the wonderful aspect of boys involvement in the music field. I find it quite difficult to find appropriate things to show my music students that are relevant, as this movie is. I also find that the storyline really makes my students think about how the whites treated blacks/colored of the time. They are quite offended that ANYONE would treat African American or any other people this way. What an insightful film. BRAVO to Disney and this wonderful story.
