Directed by Stuart Hazeldine. With Adar Beck, Gemma Chan, Nathalie Cox, John Lloyd Fillingham. The final candidates for a highly desirable corporate job are locked together in an exam room and given a test so simple and confusing that tension begins to unravel.
Stand and Deliver (1988): My Educational Psychology instructor at UNCW had our class watch several "teacher" movies and analyze the pedagogy evidenced in the film. (Yes, we had to write a paper on it!) This was a class favorite, along with Lean on Me (1989) and Dangerous Minds (1995). Freedom Writers (2007) would be a great addition to the exceptional-educator example canon! ~M
