About the Movie

Two-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep stars with Angela Bassett in a heartwarming, acclaimed true story of how one woman's musical gift affected those who least expected it. Roberta Guaspari (Streep) overcame the skepticism of everyone who didn't think she should be teaching violin to students in a tough inner-city neighborhood. But even after a decade of ever-growing popularity and countless success stories, Roberta and her kids must rise to meet an even greater challenge - budget cuts aimed at shutting down her valuable program for good. Also starring Aidan Quinn and Grammy winner Gloria Estefan in a stellar cast, this extraordinary story will inspire anyone who's ever thought their dreams were too far out of reach.

Fresh: Boring as it may have become for Meryl Streep to show up for awards ceremonies, count on her to be doing it again. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: There really is a Roberta Guaspari, but this dull, wanly repetitive teacher movie fails to bring her story to life. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: To see Streep's prickly pear of an instructor blossom along with her struggling students is a rare joy. – Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: All other credits are pro, with a special nod to Peter Deming's subtly nuanced camerawork. – David Stratton, Variety, Jul 7, 2010
