Based on Ernest J. Gaines' National Book Critics Circle Award-winning novel, A lesson before dying is set in a small Louisiana Cajun community in the late 1940's. Jefferson, a young illiterate black man, is falsely convicted of murder and is sentenced to death. Grant Wiggins, the plantation schoolteacher, agrees to talk with the condemned man. The disheartened Wiggins had once harbored dreams of escaping from his impoverished youth, yet he returned to his home town after university, to teach children whose lives seemed as unpromising as Jefferson's. The two men forge a bond as they come to understand what it means to resist and defy one's own fate
Dangerous minds by Hollywood Pictures( visu )
2 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in Undetermined and English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
Eine ehemalige Marinesoldatin kriegt einen Job als Englischlehrerin in einer heruntergekommenen Schule. Mit unkonventionellen Unterrichtsmethoden gewinnt sie das Vertrauen der Straßenkids. Doch dann folgen knüppeldick die Enttäuschungen. Eine gefährliche Gratwanderung zwischen Sozialromantik, Sozialkritik und sozialer Realität. (Margret Köhler) (...) Das Happy End ist naiv märchenhaft: Die aufsässige, wilde Ghetto-Bande überzeugt die nach vielen bösen Erfahrungen frustrierte Lehrerin, sie nicht zu verlassen, ihren Job zu behalten. Dagegen scheint Richard Brooks Film "Die Saat der Gewalt" von 1955 noch heute brisant. (Angie Dullinger, AZ, 4.1.96) (...) Der gut gemachte Film ist viel zu schön, um glaubwürdig zu sein oder auch nur zu fesseln. Seichte Unterhaltung mit Sozialtouch. (Zoom, 1/96) Der Film "Dangerous Minds", der den jungen Leuten einzuhämmern sucht, sie hätten, wenn sie nur wollten, stets die Wahl, steht in guter Kinotradition. Doch in der Reihe von Richard Brooks" "Blackboard jungle" aus den fünfziger Jahren zu Christopher Cains "Prinzipal - Einer gegen alle" und "Stand and deliver" von Ramon Menendez in den Achtzigern ist er mit Abstand der argloseste. (Hans-Dieter Seidel, FAZ, 2.1.96)
