Entre les murs

Here it comes, another film about teachers trying to make a difference in the classroom.  Its no Sunset Park and its no Dangerous Minds because its French and everything in French sounds sexier.  Entre Les Murs, or The Class, is about Francois, a high school teacher, working in one of the toughest areas in town.  With the best intentions in mind Francois attempts to create an atmosphere in the classroom built around respect and assiduity, an atmosphere that does not go untested by his students.  Sound familiar?  Laurent Cantet’s film won the Palme d’Or  at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.   Go check this one out The Class is in theaters December 19th.
