The Hobart Shakespeareans
Mel Stuart's documentary follows Rafe Esquith, a passionate educator who inspires his students from Central Los Angeles to achieve the best that life has to offer. Mixing Shakespeare, Mark Twain and math, and touring his young charges around Washington, D.C., and college campuses, the elementary school teacher makes learning exciting, including having actors Ian McKellen and Michael York visit the class. For the finale, the kids stage a production of "Hamlet."
