Starring Mohamed Fellag, Sophie Nélisse, Émilien Néron, Danielle Proulx, Brigitte Poupart

Nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Monsieur Lazhar tells the poignant story of a Montreal middle school class shaken by the departure of their well-liked teacher. Bachir Lazhar (Fellag), a 55-year-old Algerian immigrant, offers the school his services as a substitute teacher and is quickly hired. As he helps the children heal, he also learns to accept his own painful past. This moving film features exquisite performances by Fellag and a stunning ensemble of child actors.

REVIEWS

“In a class with the François Truffaut of “The 400 Blows” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“3.5 Stars! Leaves you hopeful, and even exhilarated!” – Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

“Like a dedicated teacher, this is a film that stays with you.” – Kyle Smith, New York Post
