Notebook Reviews: MR. HOLLAND’S OPUS

4.5 out of 5 stars

Stephen Herek – 1995

Mr. Holland’s Opus is a fantastic epic drama with a superb (Academy Award nominated) performance from Richard Dreyfuss.

Some may say that this Stephen Herek directed film is overly sentimental, but it’s a great emotional journey with some terrific make-up effects for Dreyfuss. Michael Kamen‘s musical score is wonderful too. 

A wonderfully constructed drama, Mr. Holland’s Opus is highly recommended.
