Awful
2 September 2005 | by seriouscustomerSee all my reviews

This movie butchers the real book on which it is based. The Maggie character in no way reflected the teaching methods or philosophies of her real life counterpart; John Getz ("Dan") plays a complainer who is just as far removed from his real counterpart as Maggie. The script and acting were stiff and unconvincing. This movie shows the downside of literary license.

The real book on which this inadvertently mocks will not be identified by title here to a) protect the innocent, including the real people whose lives on which it is about and b) not to associate it; those whom it is about or its author in any way, shape and form to this trite tragedy of the week.
