Movie Reviews

If all school teachers cared this way
mrsuntan | Yorktown, VA | 07/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If only all school teachers took a sincere interest in there students in this manner today. Based on a true story, Pat Conroy left a legacy in the lives of his students and their families."
Great story for teachers and educators in general
Estuardo Salazar | Miami, FL United States | 10/13/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What a great way to compare the "old ways" of education and the passion of a young educator who gets to connect with his students through innovative methodology. The bureacracy of government regulating education gets an appropriate criticism too. No five stars due to the lack of subtitles, specially in other languages (Spanish) which would have made the product perfect!"
Teaching and Island living
Laura Wray | Daufuskie, SC | 03/18/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This dvd will inspire and excite you! It is full of energy and passion. You will want to lobby against huge schools and bureaucracy and will long for the one room school house. That said, the original John Voight version "Conrack" is preferable and more realistic (no hills depicted as the setting is South Carolina's lowcountry). Also many of the families who still live on Daufuskie are not pleased with Pat Conroy's portrayal of them which magnifies himself to their detriment. Fortunately, the true setting Mary Fields School is still used regularly for church summer camps, town meetings, and even birthday parties. The families still are able to live on Daufuskie Island and maintain much of the culture depicted in the dvd. Most of all, Daufuskie still has a marvelous school serving 16 children ages 4 through 11. And yes, the teachers are passionate and the students thrive!"
