The movie's sense of inspiration is realistic. It never implies a future of glamour, only hard-won success.
An earnest crowd-pleaser that could have used an extra helping of dramatic tension -- but it succeeds by placing us in an interesting world with characters who are impossible not to root for.
Wilma Stephenson...definitely deserves a subtler cinematic testament than this lazily inspirational documentary.
If the filmmakers do little to expand the vocabulary of the genre, they enhance our appreciation of that most undervalued sector of the American workforce, the city schoolteacher.
Pressure Cooker is not about pressure so much as clarity of purpose. It's about a unique teacher's way of building confidence and pride, with results that joyously speak for themselves.
A heart-grabbing, awe-inspiring work that needs no embellishment.
Inspiring cooking-themed docu is great for teens.
By the end, you won't need to slice onions to get the tear ducts working.
I grew a deep hunger while watching Pressure Cooker, not just from the students' mouthwatering dishes, but from the fact that teacher/chef Wilma Stephenson could uniformly inspire such success.
These stories move and inspire as tales of youth in need cooking up opportunity from scratch.
High school teacher Wilma Stephenson nourishes her culinary arts students in their hungry bids for better lives. An inspiration, 'Pressure Cooker' is a welcome antithesis to slice and dice.
It's convincing because of the force of Wilma Stephenson's personality and the fierce love she bestows on her culinary arts students at Philadelphia's Frankford High School.
Has this one in my Netflix queue for ages. Basically Spellbound for high school culinary students.
