Gentleman Sidney Poitier,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: To Sir, with Love 2 (DVD) (1996) (Tv-Film) (DVD)
Sequels are often not a patch on the original, but this is not so with this film. Although the same format is used in both films(To Sir With Love) i.e. black determined teacher teaches difficult and disadvantaged pupils, winning in the end, it works because 30 years after the first film, the story is taken up again but with Sidney retiring after a long, successful and inspiring career in England to take up a post in Chicago and in what could be happening in schools today, touching on drugs and guns. Sidney Poitier was wonderful in both films and I have already watched this film 3 times after it only arrived 3 days ago!! Parents with children - please watch it and be inspired.
