Descripción del producto

William Hundert (Kevin Kline), asistente de dirección de la prestigiosa escuela St. Benedict, vive según sus propias enseñanzas. Esforzándose cada día en inspirar a sus alumnos para que se conviertan en adultos cultos y responsables, es un hombre de principios, apasionado. Está firmemente convencido de que la labor de un maestro no es sólo educar al alumno, sino también formar e incluso moldear su carácter. Pero en otoño de 1972, el enclaustrado universo de tradición y enseñanza del señor Hundert se verá sacudido con la llegada de Sedgewick Bell (Emile Hirsch), un nuevo pupilo, hijo de un senador del estado de West Virginia. Casi inmediatamente, profesor y alumno se enzarzarán en una batalla de voluntades, cuyas repercusiones todavía afectarán a sus vidas un cuarto de siglo después. A pesar de todo, y después de una desesperada reunión con el padre de Sedgewick, siempre ocupado y poseedor también de un carácter muy fuerte, Hundert descubrirá que él y el muchacho tienen una cosa en común que le impedirá desistir en su formación.

Yes it was. I saw the compassion Kline's character had for his students. Especially "Sedgwick Bell". Alas "Hundert" was made a fool and twice. Well that's what happens when you care about others at times. (i'm a retired teacher - 22 years of service with 14 of those years having worked with special needs students...teaching is and always will be a labor of love.)

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas What will our legacy be? 3 de marzo de 2006
Por Steve Chernoski - Publicado en

This is a truly inspiring movie, definitely underrated.

1) The acting is first rate. Kevin Kline was born for this part and shines. He articulates the drive and determination of Hundert perfectly. The young actors are also phenomenal and this is a breakout film for many of them: Emile Hirsch is everywhere now; Paul Dano is rising up as is Jesse Eisenberg (who was just in the Squid and the Whale).

2) James Newton Howard's score to the film is very engaging and definitely makes the pivotal scenes that much more powerful.

3) The theme is centered on character. Shutruk-Nahhunte is not known of today because he gave back nothing. He just did for himself and contributed nothing to society. Sedgewick "is" Nahhunte. Though on the outside, he seems successful, Sedgewick will probably not contribute much to the good of others. The other historical people in Hundert's curriculum are people who gave back or contributed something to their respective societies. They are remembered because they left a good legacy on life. It is hinted that the other students will go on to leave similar legacies, while Sedgewick will not. (Though in the deleted scenes you see how the director was trying to make this more evident; it just didn't flow well.)

4) As a teacher, this is a favorite of mine and perhaps that biases my review. (In a good way, bad way, who knows)? I have shown parts of this film in class with very positive reactions from my students. The film is unique; it shows the main characters young, and then shows how they end up later in life. Kids are always thinking about how they'll end up and I think they appreciate that aspect of the film especially. I also think it also shows kids that they can have fun in life, but should also be thinking of what their contribution to the world will be. We all should.

This excellent movie about education in a private prepratory academy centers on the period of the mid 1970's, when the value of a classical education based on a knowledge of Greek, Latin, Literature, Philosophy, History, Mathematics and Religion was coming into question and eventually were surrendered to our modern day cirriculum. This movie is a reflection of a nostalgic past when educators were confident that a true gentlemen could not be moulded without these essentials. The main character, a History teacher, strongly believes in honesty and is dedicated to the classics only to end up feeling betrayed and shaken when he is countered by characters whose only concern is worldly power and money. He proves just how out of touch he is with the world when he visits a Politician in an attempt to motivate his son who he is having trouble with at school. The politician brushes off his objections and essentially tells him the limits of his authority over his son. He is further shocked when he discovers the son cheating in a contest and informs the principal, who tells him to ignore it. Not ready to stand against his beliefs, he goes off the cards and asks a question that he realizes the son can't possibly know in order to end the contest. In the end, Mr. Hundert's rigid dedication to honesty is somewhat hypocritical, because the mission to motivate the politician's son was at the expense of someone else!The dictum centers around how one "little sin" causes a tidal wave of destruction in the future, as he is first, rejected to be the headmaster at the academy in favor of another younger man who he went out of his way to get hired in the 70's, then called to re-enact the contest again, as the now adult son of the politician promises an endowment if Hundert will participate to "restore his honor". He agrees but fails to see that the son is an image of his father in all respects, and only uses people for greater selfish objectives. In the re-enactment of the contest, Hundert once again realizes that the son is cheating and goes off the cards to ask a question that he can't possibly answer. Standing up for "what is right" , taking the high moral ground. It is then he must face his "little sin" and confess to the student that he denied a place for the sake of the rotten/selfish politician's son. After confession and a realization of the limits that one can't make everyone see the light, he returns to the old academy as a new man, refreshed and willing to just do what he is best at under a new set of pupils of every race, sex and creed in the modern era of the 90's. One of the best pictures in recent memory.

A wonderful movie about the challenges and choices teachers make every day! It challenges people regarding values, character, and morality. A very good discussion starter for teachers.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Cheaters Never Prosper or Do They? 28 de septiembre de 2006
Por Royce Callaway - Publicado en
Formato: DVD Compra verificada
This is a great film and rates only 4 stars because it is not without some flaws but those flaws are minor in comparison to the message the film brings. On the negative side the subplots are thin and not explored. The motivation for some of the action is missing or only implied. Kevin Kline is an excellent actor but because he must substitute expression for dialog he frequently comes across as suffering from acute constipation. BUT THIS IS A GREAT FILM -- especially today when cheating is so rampant and seems to be so accepted.

The movie rests on three moral issues. The teacher is highly motivated and truly believes in morality, virtue, dedication, and service to others. When confronted with a student with great potential but poor values and worse motivation, he compromises in order he thinks to salvage the student. The headmaster when confronted with the knowledge that there has been cheating elects to ignore it. Should the teacher expose the cheater for what he is? The cheater only believes in winning at any cost and if that cost is cheating then so be it, because he places no value on honor, integrity, or honesty. Is a life built on sham, selfishness,and devoid of virtue and honor worthy of respect? Is the price of cheating paid in self-respect? Can hyprocrisy substitute for honor, commitment, and integrity? These questions are mostly left open for the audience to decide and for this reason this is a great movie to watch with your teenage children or even young adults. Too often the temptation to cheat in order to win seems like the easy path and others that take that path -- as they do in this movie -- seem to be the winers in life, but at what cost? This movie explores that question without preaching or even providing an answer. Anyone who believes in honor, virtue, and fair play should see this movie.
