Within this short 7-minute film a pretty accurate picture is painted depicting the great hopes and expectations many parents have for their children. It also shows how many parents might have a dream for a child, but don’t recognize the fact that it takes time and investment from both themselves and the child (if they’re interested) to accomplish dreams, and how an understanding teacher can have an incredible impact when they shed light on that fact. The small film group that produced this did an admirable job of getting their point across with a tastefully done story and interesting aspects in such a short amount of time.
Even though there are a few stilted moments and the image quality is a ways from being professional, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall flow of the film and the acting quality of the small cast. The little girl receiving a violin lesson is pretty adorable, too!
I wouldn’t necessarily say this is a wonderful teaching resource, but it is an enlightening reminder to be willing to be patient and not expect too much too soon in any endeavor whether we are a teacher, a student, or a parent.
