Set in 1987 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, this movie tells the story a brand-new teacher and Mom who is given a tougher than expected teaching job and winds up teaching homeless children in a school that is housed in a room and called, literally, The School with No Name. She has some personal prejudicial hurdles to cross before she is able to be a true teacher for these children and of course there are hurdles like the lack of books and supplies.
A 24-year-old first-time teacher overcomes her initial fears and prejudices and makes a difference in the lives of the homeless children she teaches in a shelter's makeshift classroom. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

David S (us) wrote: Adaptation of the EM Forster novel, this film has a terrific cast of British actors who are well suited to this kind of film. Helen Mirren plays Lilia British woman who marries an Italian man, then sadly dies in childbirth. It's up to her brother (Rupert Graves) and stuffy sister to retrive the baby from Italy, while Lilia's friend (Helena Bonham Carter) falls for her friends widower. A familiar set up for a period drama, but still a good watch.

dm S (us) wrote: In my estimation, the Wallant adaptation called The Pawnbroker is Sidney Lumet's best film. It's about an emotionally shut-off person but it evokes big emotions, gets under your skin. It's basically a journey: at the beginning, Nazerman in rigid, he locks himself in his horrific past and in his little store where he acts like a tyrant (when Sol hurts the woman who brings in a ring made of glass, it's calm, but shocking) - he's depraved of humanity as the images-flashbacks show. Later on, he regains his feelings partly thanks to Jesus Ortiz's happy nature, partly because of Rodriguez's threats: like the Nazi lager, the pawnshop at Brooklyn products victims, filth and terror. This is the moment when Nazerman realizes he has to change for the better and he has to become a man: with heart, emotions, with soul. From this minute, the flashbacks represent his mind becomes complete - but its price is losing someone he loves, the loss shows he has indeed a human heart.
