Lean On Me (1989)



Reviews and Comments

This is the definitive inner city school picture. Morgan Freeman turns in a spectacular performance as Joe Clark, who attempts to shape up a school where gang violence and drug abuse reign. His unorthodox methods incense city officials, leaving him between a rock and a hard place. This engrossing tale is based on a true story, making its ultimate resolution even more fulfilling.
