To Sir with Love (1967): Idealistic engineer-trainee and his experiences in teaching a group of rambunctious white high school students from the slums of London’s East End.
Directed by James Clavell
I first saw this movie when I was about 12,and subsequently fell in love with it, and Sidney Poitier. It was,and is,just as affecting and poignant now as when I first saw it.
This is wonderful film that is also an enlightening center for a lot of cultural aspects. I think it no coincidence that this movie was filmed and pieced together during yet another “shakeup” revoluationary era in the twentieth century (though the whole century was revolutionary, but that is beside the point). Its timeless points about values to be gained, manners to be lost and taken, and the cracks in society that inevitably happen in a culture shock world that can be mended, are touching, sincere and effective. Well done, for yet another nurturing and rich film Reel 13.
