Kevin Kline at his best
There is no doubt that Kevin Kline is both a funny man and a fine comedic actor. However, as he has proved yet again, anything other than dramatic roles is a waste of his acting talent.
In the finest film he has made, he is superb in his role as school teacher and mentor to a generation of boys — including one particular bad egg.
Excellently cast, scripted and acted, this is a must see.
Teaching at an exclusive boys’ school, a teacher must grapple with his own rigid sense of right and wrong as he tries to prepare the future leaders of tomorrow for manhood.
Loved this movie. The best I’ve seen in a long, long time. The message is that without intellectual honesty, we have and are nothing. Character is our foundation and our salvation. Being the smartest is fun, but true emotional intelligence is a real achievement. WHY wasn’t this film nominated for an Oscar? Kevin Kline is an inspiration, while Emile Hirsch is truly brilliant in a difficult role for his age group.
The movie reminded me of the Breakfast Club because none of the main characters are what they seem at first glance to be. They resist stereotypes and labels because they are so obviously imperfect, and the consequences of their actions are not clear-cut, to them or to the viewer.
Excellent movie. Run, don’t walk to rent this DVD. I’m amazed it didn’t get more press at the time.
