Product Description

Starring: Edward James Olmos, Lou Diamond Phillips, Andy Garcia. Stand and Deliver does just that. This moving, acclaimed crowd pleaser is the dynamic saga of real-life heroes determined to conquer a foe few people dare confront: the National Advanced Placement Calculus Exam. Edward James Olmos (a 1988 Best Actor Academy Award nominee) gives a performance of fire and grit as Jaime Escalante, a math teacher at East Los Angeles' Garfield High who refuses to write off his inner-city students as losers. Escalante cajoles, pushes, threatens and inspires 18 kids who were struggling with fractions to become math whizzes. Lou Diamond Phillips and Andy Garcia co-star in this Rocky of the clasroom. No doubt about it: you'll stand and cheer! Region-2 compatible DVD (suitable for UK DVD players).

Format: VHS Tape
Although the film is mainly concerned with a group of Hispanic students, I believe that this film is an inspiration to anyone who has ever found mathematics difficult. It encouraged me to obtain an 'A' Level in Mathematics with a good grade. Perhaps it is wrong to confine the inspirational nature of the film to mathematics alone. Regardless of the particular field, I believe that the film shows that, with hard work and dedication, people can achieve more than they often believe to be possible.

This is one of my favorite films. I saw it on TV a few years ago and immediately went out to get the VHS. I am now upgrading my frequently watched copy to DVD.

The film is about catching and focussing the attention of children from difficult backgrounds and teaching them about commitment and learning. I am biased because the subject is maths but the film is an inspiration for all learning. I will continue to watch this film on a regular basis because it gives me a lift every time.

This is one of my favourite films. It is a story of triumph in the face of adversity. Many people find mathematics difficult. However, these students from difficult backgrounds are able to master the subject. The viewer is encouraged to feel as though he can overcome his difficulties. It is a powerful testament to the importance of good teaching.

Invaluable insight into what it truly takes to be a real teacher. A 'must have' for anyone entering the profession, and for those who have been there for most of their lives... watch it, digest it, and learn. The only drawback with this version, since it is aimed at the domestic market, is that quite a few scenes from the original film are not shown. However, this does not detract from the message. Every teacher, and indeed every parent should have a copy.

I bought this film to play for my maths students at the end of term. I played approx 10 minutes at the end of each lesson and then finished the film in the last lesson of term. It gave them something to think about knowing this was a true story.

I havent quite watched this to the end yet. I ordered it becasue I am a teacher and got some stuff from Tom Daly on turning your most disruptive child into your best pupil with this are some movie notes and this was one of the movies. Toms stuff is excellent and I trusted his judgement. Also Tony Robbins sings the praises of this teacher who inspires his pupils. From what I have seen this guy would not have inspired me. He does not deal with his pupils in the way I expected at all. The movis seems dated and does not grip me. Pupils today even in Junior can be harder to deal with than these high school kids who are obviuosly just acting. It is not vivid, real and passionate for me.
