Angeles riots. Swank plays the role of Erin Gruwell, a new, excited schoolteacher who leaves the
safety of her hometown, Newport Beach, to teach at Woodrow Wilson High School in Long Beach,
a formerly high achieving school which has recently put an integration plan in place. Her enthusiasm
is rapidly challenged when she realizes that her class are all "at-risk" high school students, also known
as "unteachables", and not the eager college students she was expecting.

most of the high school students stop attending class. Not only does Gruwell meet opposition from her
high school students, but she also has a difficult time with her department head, who refuses to let her
teach her high school students with books in case they get damaged and lost, and instead tells her to
focus on training them discipline and obedience.

4] Mona Lisa Smile 蒙娜丽莎的微笑

a position teaching "History of Art" at Wellesley College, a conservative women's private liberal arts
college in Massachusetts because she wants to make a difference and influence the next generation

stick to the syllabus if she wants to keep her job...
 Dead Poets Society 死亡诗社
Neil Perry (Robert Sean Leonard), Todd Anderson (Ethan Hawke), Knox Overstreet (Josh Charles),
Charlie Dalton (Gale Hansen), Richard Cameron (Dylan Kussman), Steven Meeks (Allelon Ruggiero),
and Gerard Pitts (James Waterston) are senior students of the Welton Academy prep school, whose
ethos is defined by the headmaster Gale Nolan (Norman Lloyd) as "tradition, honour, discipline and
excellence". Both Neil and Todd are under harsh parental pressure to become a doctor and a lawyer
respectively, but Todd wants to be a writer.
The teaching methods of their new English teacher, John Keating (Robin Williams), are unorthodox by
Welton standards, whistling the 1812 Overture and taking them out of the classroom to focus on the idea
of carpe diem. He tells the students that they may call him "O Captain! My Captain!," in reference to a
Walt Whitman poem, if they feel daring. In another class, Keating has Neil read the introduction to their
poetry textbook, prescribing a mathematical formula to rate the quality of poetry which Keating finds
ridiculous, and he instructs his pupils to rip the introduction out of their books, to the amazement of
one of his colleagues.
Later he has the students stand on his desk in order to look at the world in a different way. Inspired by
Keating, the boys secretly revive a school literary club, the titular "Dead Poets Society," to which Keating
had belonged, meeting in a cave in the school grounds.

 School of Rock 摇滚校园
The world's least-employable heavy metal guitarist is entrusted with the minds of upstate New York's
best and brightest in this fish-out-of-water comedy. Jack Black plays Dewey Finn, axe-bearer for a
fitfully successful bar band determined to win a regional battle-of-the-bands competition. There's
only one thing standing in their way: the self-indulgent solos and crowd-diving antics of their
"embarrassing" lead guitarist.
When his band votes him out in favor of a would-be rock god, Dewey has to make the rent somehow,
and after intercepting a call for his substitute-teacher roomie Ned (Mike White), the pot-bellied slacker
finds himself in front of a class of elite elementary school students. At a loss for a lesson plan, Dewey
takes offense at the pre-teen prodigies' staid musical regimen and makes it his goal to preach them
the gospel of The Who, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC -- with the ulterior motive of getting them to compete
against his former band for a cash prize.
But no matter how willing his pupils, Dewey runs up against the consternation of the school's stern
headmistress Principal Mullins (Joan Cusack), the battle-of-the-bands' promoter (Frank Whaley), and
not least, his identity-deprived roomie Ned.

 Red Like The Sky 听见天堂
Cristiano Bortone's inspirational Italian-language drama Red Like the Sky recounts the incredible true
story of the early life of blind sound editor Mirco Mencacci. The victim of a freak childhood accident in
1970 that robbed him permanently of his sight, Mencacci is shipped off to a Genoan boarding school
for Catholic boys, per the stipulations of the Italian government. Not one to be daunted or repressed,
Mirco forges a heartwarming friendship with the daughter of the school gatekeeper; the two abscond
together, via her bicycle, on a series of secret trips to the closest cinema.
Meanwhile, at the school, Mirco also begins recording his own sound dramas with the school's tape
recorder and the use of audio books in the institution's library. In time, the innovative young man invites
other students to participate, who eagerly accept, and Mirco uses the activity to help each fellow student
identify his own innate gifts and pursue his dreams. But when he leads a cadre of boys on a covert
expedition to the cinema, the school administrators take swift and decisive action.
