Movie Review: Monsier Lazhar

This French-Canadian film tells the story of an Algerian man who takes over teaching a class of eleven year-old children who are dealing with the suicide of their teacher.

Bashir Lazhar is also dealing with his own demons, and in so doing finds a kinship with those students.

A heartwarming piece, this Oscar nominated film is a must see.  I highly recommend it.
