Critic Reviews for Pressure Cooker
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.
