As an old rock&roll road dog who played for years and later went into production and management of younger rock bands, I think this movie has a lot to say on many levels.
I'm not going to comment on a review as such BUT the internet TV view listing I saw when I went to see if it was going to play again said that these kids had gotten good "dispite" the way the teacher had gone about doing it...
To me it's funny how a little rough language towards the kids says somehow the teaching method was a failure.
Without giving away anything about the movie I will say this: I remember going to a school as a young child where I was in a talent show. I rehearsed for weeks and won!...After it was over I realized that EVERYONE had won something.....all 50 kids!
I was placated into thinking that was how life worked, then wham, the reality of musical life hit me when I went on the road in the real world.
Let's face it, people as a rule (and young people in particular) are basic under-achievers. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of "frustration love" to make it all click.
Music itself is a passion, not a method, and rock music even more so than most.
As a parent myself I would suggest this movie to anyone who has a musically inclined child not matter what genre' they wish to pursue.
Competition is within ones self, not against everyone else. If the fire of music is in a child it will come out if handled right, if not, then thats OK also, but don't let it just die as a faint ember of creativity...fan it into a full flame of artistic expression.
