Love watching true stories. Only saw \"Stand and Deliver\" so far and even showed it to my 8th graders. If these kids can succeed with so much against them, imagine what upper middle class students can do! Lots of Spanish spoken, so it is a good way to learn some new words too.
At first this appears to be something that you wouldn't associate with Tim Burton, but as the story progresses, you quickly see all of the magic that you love. It's a terrific and touching story about a father's stories and his son's disbelief. Funny and Imaginative, you won't regret viewing.
