Music of the Heart

Okay, this movie feels too much like a copy of "Mr. Holland's Opus" about an inspirational violin teacher, played by Meryl Streep, whose music department threatens to be cut due to the lack of budget. However, this is based on a true story. Meryl Streep's performance in this overall fine film earned her an Academy Award nomination. Recommended to classical music lovers.
