Heart of Stone is a heartbreaker: a documentary about an inner-city high school that shows how hard, how necessary, and how infinitely rewarding it can be to open doors for kids who didn't know they were there.
Heart of Stone is a portrait of a dedicated man -- smart, articulate, strong and tough-minded yet warm and compassionate, willing and able to reach out and communicate with his students on an individual basis.
Two things keep Heart of Stone from being like every other documentary about a dedicated principal who tries to turn a failed urban high school around.
