Product Description

Amazon.ca

Novelist James Clavell wrote, produced, and directed this 1967 British film (based on a novel by E.R. Braithwaite) about a rookie teacher who throws out stock lesson plans and really takes command of his unruly, adolescent students in a London school. Poitier is very good as a man struggling with the extent of his commitment to the job, and even more as a teacher whose commitment is to proffering life lessons instead of academics. The spirit of this movie can be found in such recent films as Dangerous Minds and Mr. Holland's Opus, but none is as moving as this one. Besides, the others don't have a title song performed by pop star Lulu. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars To Sir, With Love May 24 2013
By Kelly

Has to be the all time best - love your teacher movie. Sidney Poitier is the ultimate calm, cool. and collected, demanding respect teacher ever on film. I would recommend this to anyone who ever had a crush on a teacher! Judy Gleeson plays her part so well, yet we know all the girls had a soft spot for him. He is the ultimate ladies man and man's man. I have loved this movie and the musical score from the first time I ever saw it.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful story Jan. 13 2014
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We enjoyed this movie very much. Sidney Poitier is a great actor, and he didn't disappoint here. Mark Thackeray, an out-of-work engineer turns to teaching in London's tough East End. Where other teachers before him have failed, Thackeray finds the way to reach the unruly graduating class. He teaches them about respect, for oneself and for others. We watched the students being transformed into young adults who cared about their lives and had hope for the future. We found this to be a moving, sometimes humorous, sometimes sad story, but in the end we cheered for the outcome. I recommend this movie for teens and adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie-not in sealed package (3.5 stars) Nov. 18 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a Christmas present for my mom. This is, hands down, her favourite movie and one of mine as well. Who doesn't love Mr. Poitier? I have been searching for a DVD copy of this movie and was delighted to see that I could purchase it here.
The seller did use minimal shipping packaging (which I love, because who doesn't like to be green?) and it did arrive within the estimated time frame (big plus). However, the DVD itself arrived in an unsealed DVD case. I will note that the DVD does in fact look official (with proper cover and disc art). There was simply no security seal or plastic wrapping. The disc looks to be in good condition (no scratches) but I have yet to test how it plays (because it is a gift). I would rate seller as 3-3.5 stars until I confirm that the merchandise works properly. (Then, I would rate 4 stars.)

After all these years I had the priviledge of looking at this film with my daughter who is now 23 years old and both of us simply loved to what is essential in life - simplicity & love!

Great film, really enjoyed it. However if you live in North America you will need a multi-regional DVD player, which you can get from (you guessed it) Amazon. If you like movies from around the world, then it will be an ideal purchase. Average $50+

This movie I was as I child and really enjoyed it. Sidney Poitier is one of my old time favorites of actors and I thought he acting in this was absolutely fantastic.

Thanks,
