Monsieur Lazhar (2011, Classification TBC)
Dir: Philippe Falardeau, Canada, 94mins

Set in Montreal, Monsieur Lazhar is a profoundly moving story about a group of young schoolchildren coming to terms with the adult world well before their time, and the inspirational educator who transforms their lives.

Bachir Lazhar, a 55-year-old Algerian immigrant, offers his services as a substitute teacher upon learning that their beloved teacher has passed away. As he comes to understand this motley but endearing group and the class begins to heal, nobody in the school is aware of Lazhar’s painful past; nor do they suspect that his own place in the world is in jeopardy.
