??Pressure cooker?? is an inspiring documentary about Ms Grant, most lightly Americas most famous tough-love art teacher. We`ll see how she balances going from scarring students from being in her class to being a soft loving teacher. She pushes the students to achieve a cooking scholarship. This movie stands for achieving goals and growing as a person. A movie worth seeing! The movie is mainly about food, but it goes so much deeper than that. We`ll get to know three of the students more up-close than others. The characters are the poor girl from Africa that struggles dealing with balancing her strict father and the Philadelphia culture, the pretty cheerleader that never have time doing anything for herself because of her blind sister that always need her and at last we have the big football player that tries to be there for his family. Ms Grant is becoming softer and more as a friend later in the movie then she predict to be in the beginning.
It shows how reality is in the food business, long days with hard work. There were a lot of scenes just showing us how many hours they practiced tournéed potatoes. The career does not include glamour at any kind, but then again its more elegant than working behind the desk of McDonalds.
