Oscar-nominated Richard Dreyfuss is Glenn Holland, a man whose ambitions to compose a symphony are superseded by financial obligations that lead him to a job as a high school music teacher. He stays on the job for three decades, facing budget crises, at times unappreciative students and a strained relationship with his wife and hearing-impaired son. With Glenne Headly, Jay Thomas, Jean Louisa Kelly. 143 min. Widescreen; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French; "making of" featurette.
