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.
Audience Reviews for Pressure Cooker
Has this one in my Netflix queue for ages. Basically Spellbound for high school culinary students.
Shows the power of a teacher who expects a lot, and gives everything. In particular, she allows these kids to dream of a better future and takes them step by step on the path to pursue that dream.
To this film was very inspiring because, even though your poor and don't have a good living area you can still do great and achieve your goals in life and be happy. This movie inspiried me so much because I want to be a culinary arts student when i am older and i hope to achieve what all these students have a acheved and be able to work as hard as they di to achieve everything they did.
