October 3, 2018 - 8:00 pm
King Hall, French House Common Room

"An inspirational story in the rich tradition of "Music of the Heart" and "Mr. Holland's Opus", "The Chorus"has moved critics everywhere to declare it one of the year's very best films! When he takes a job teaching music at a school for troubled boys, Clément Mathieu is unprepared for its harsh discipline and depressing atmosphere. But with passion and unconventional teaching methods, he's able to spark his students' interest in music and bring them a newfound joy! It also puts him at odds with the school's overbearing headmaster, however, locking Mathieu in a battle between politics and the determination to change his pupils' lives!"

Film will be screened in French with English subtitles. All are welcome! Refreshments will be served!
