PG
Mr. Holland's Opus is a Capra-esque inspirational teacher film about Glenn Holland, played masterfully by Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, American Graffiti, What About Bob?, The Goodbye Girl, Stand by Me, W, Piranha 3D, The Poseidon Adventure), whose dream is to write music. A young wife and the responsibility of a baby about to arrive make him seek a job as a music teacher. Soon, he is no longer paying the rent of an apartment, but considering a house because they no longer fit within such confined space. His dream to compose one piece that would achieve his dream to leave a legacy behind and make a difference in the music world. This is set aside as he takes on the role of mentor, husband, friend, father, teacher, counselor and the more involved he becomes in the dreams of his students, the further his dream appears to be.
