Film: Mr. Holland's Opus (view the trailer here)
Hosted by: Reverend Dr. Wallace Mayton III and Abby Mayton Smith
Glenn Holland is a musician and composer who takes a teaching job to pay the rent while, in his 'spare time', he can strive to achieve his true goal - compose one memorable piece of music to leave his mark on the world. As Holland discovers 'Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans' and as the years unfold the joy of sharing his contagious passion for music with his students becomes his new definition of success.

Why did they select this film? The choice of “Mr. Holland’s Opus”: The movie serves as a reminder that success is not always determined by personal achievement. The unseen and unacknowledged successes may be relationships. Our Opus may be a “who” instead of a “what.”
