Cinemascope: Monsieur Lazhar

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2011.

Plot line: At a MontrĂ©al public grade school, an Algerian immigrant is hired to replace a popular teacher who committed suicide in her classroom. While helping his students deal with their grief, his own recent loss is revealed.

We often unaware of what people around us are struggling with, and would be quite surprised to find out I'd wager. I have a soft spot for the teacher-in-classroom genre of movies, and was delighted with this one.

You can see the movie trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
