This was a wonderful film that showed the reality of how poor, African-American families were treated. The schoolteacher was amazing, funny and full of surprises. He helped changed a lot of lives through his time as a temporary teacher. Great story!

Nov 29, 2013......After listening to the audiobook, I was quite anxious to see the movie. Couldn't get one, but our librarian ordered one for me! Nice! I have to say, it didn't really follow the book very well, but the scenery and kids were great. Kids were a little "neater" than I expected, but then it is a "Hallmark" production, so I guess I should have. Sugary, but good. Got a good point in about questioning authority! (Sometimes, you gotta lose, TO WIN!)
