"Mr. Holland's Opus" is just an easy target to pick apart but who wants to? Everyone has had a teacher that made a difference and this is homage to them all. Richard Dreyfuss takes on a music teaching career as a day gig so he can write his symphony in his free time. Watch this with a group of teachers and just listen to them howl at the thought of having free time. And just enjoy the thirty-year career of a teacher who challenged kids to do more.
