Though this is basically just a To Sir, With Love story updated to the 1990's, the film is made surprisingly well, thanks to the great lead performance by Pfeiffer and a cast of fresh young newcomers, who turn possible stereotypical roles into original and unique characters. The film is also very uplifting, without having to resort to becoming gooey. It is definitely one of the best films of the 1990's, and I'm sorry to say that it wasn't even nominated for any Academy awards.
