'Mr. Holland's Opus' (1997)

Ages: 10+

Synopsis: A music teacher inspires his students.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that the film includes a lengthy subplot involving Mr. Holland's crush on one of his students. Although he does not act on his feelings, Mr. Holland condones her plan to skip town before high school graduation. Beyond this, there is little for parents to worry about. Cole calls Mr. Holland an a-hole in sign language. Mr. Holland and Iris have a brief discussion about sex. Two male students briefly walk in front of the camera holding hands. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Buena Vista)
