Good movie based on a true story depicting East-Los Angeles students during the early 80â€™s and the impact of an exceptional teacher at their school. While the story summarized the achievements of the teacher and students, presenting them over the course of one year. In actuality, those achievements in Advanced Placement Calculus were attained over the course of over 7 years. Nonetheless, the movie shows that one dedicated individual can make a big difference. Much better than most movies that followed the same theme of a teacher making a difference.
