Great movie. Interesting, thought-provoking and emotional plot. A bit idealistic though. Also has some dead end sub-plots. Ending is a bit abrupt and could have done with some polishing. Still the original teacher-gets-through-to-some-unteachable-kids movie though.

Superb performance by Sidney Poitier in the lead role. Good support from a cast of mostly unknowns.

The theme song (by Lulu, who also stars in the movie) is excellent too. (The cover version, live, by 10,000 Maniacs and Michael Stipe is even better)

A true classic in every form!! Sentimental, hokey, but often insightful and a good tale about 'coming of age'. A movie that should not be missed and worth revisiting

Idealistic engineer-trainee and his experiences in teaching a group of rambunctious white high school students from the slums of London's East End.

Should be rated as one of Sidneys best films.

Poitier is great, but that's expected. The rest of the movie is alright, but a bit out-dated by today's standards.

Inspiring. And culturally moving.

Sidney Poitier single handily shows the power of his acting. With gentle charm and a firm hand by giving a brilliant performance.

Traz uma história batida, mas passa uma boa mensagem e Poitier está ótimo no papel principal.

his solution was simple and hard in the same time... firm and guide them to act now how they should act in the future so that they respected themselves...
