Starring: Samuel L. Jackson
Director: Kevin Reynolds
A vicious high school student is found murdered. Was it a gang hit?
An act of sudden rage? Or did a once - idealistic teacher finally snap?
The issues and the tension hit home when Samuel L. Jackson stars in 187,
a gritty urban school thriller directed by Kevin Reynolds. In one of 1997's
most powerful and acclaimed performances, Jackson plays dedicated science
instructor Trevor Garfield, a man with a passion for learning. Garfield
is skilled, smart, committed: the total package as a teacher. But he's
also human. And what he confronts in a school turned increasingly into
a battlefield may be more than he can bear. Maybe he'll quit teaching.
Or caring. Or maybe he'll take justice into his own hands.
