Nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar this year, The Chorus is a wonderfully positive and heartwarming addition to the axiom that one person can make a big difference. A world-class orchestra conductor is reminded of the music teacher who set him on a path from frustrated delinquent to international glory. It is 1949 in rural France and a positive thinking music teacher arrives at a boarding school for troubled youth. Given the strictness of schools in this bygone age, the innovative and kind teacher gets the place singing and changes many lives. This positive story about unlocking children?s potential has universal resonance.
The Chorus? is enchantingly beautiful and moving. - USA Today
