“Mr. Holland's Opus” quotes

Movie Mr. Holland's Opus
Title Mr. Holland's Opus
Year 1995
Director Stephen Herek
Genre Drama, Music
Plot – The movie tells the story of Genn Holland from 1965 to 1995. He is passionate about music and believes that he has the vocation and the talent of a composer. During his lifetime he must accept many disappointments, including the deafness of his son. He then understands that his fate is not so much at the keyboard as at the black board, in fact he becomes a music teacher. The movie is quite melancholic and teary, with Dreyfuss reduced to make the viewer believe in a stock character. A sort of weepy version of “Dead Poets Society”, cloy and sloppy.
