After studying in the capital, the young Cate, 18, returns to his small town in Minas Gerais, to teach in elementary school. Enthusiastic, free and communicative, she conquers the students in the act, but its leading behavior does not appeal to conservative teachers of the 40s. Every day she brings new ideas. While they discover the pleasure of learning, the school friends also have the first lessons about love, friendship and freedom. And the schoolmistress not only winning students: the most beautiful boys in town fall in love with her. Created by Tia Cida and niece of Bishop Aristides, Cate grew up with his uncle's godson, Beto, who became a priest and return to the city after studying outside.

Do you think that you would like to see a rousing story of a Mexican hero who has almost risen to mythic proportions? If you would, you will enjoy this movie. Oh, how I hate movie critics who care more about being clever than telling the truth about movies. Viva Zapata is a good one. See it.

They leave the drama to be obviously explained and take the comedy to a hilarious with no to little foul language. And I love cuss words. Fuck. Shit. Anyways, I'be been in a debate about what's better between this and The way way back, I'll keep my personal opinion to myself but Nick Swardson delivers, of course. Biaggio, is by far the best character and randomly hysterical. Patrick's parents are funny as well. For only really shooting in one location, it opens up beautifully, and almost makes you wish you had a place you could escape to, with a hittin soundtrack, this movie will always make me feel like a King of summer.
