We watched this in music at school and i don't know in what world the teacher thought this would be appropriate! One quote from the film: "playing the drum is like making love, you can't look down to make sure you've got the flow right". There are some racism and language issues but i cannot stress enough about the sexual things! It's appauling to show this to a child under 10 and still not good to show it to and under 15!
I enjoyed this movie, it was a story about a kid who earns a scholarship to play the drums at a university. The basic message is if you have a passion for something, you can work hard to achieve it and that even if you hit obstacles along the way there are ways to surpass them without losing sight of your dreams.
