Lean On Me
Starring: Morgan Freeman, Beverly Todd,
Director: John G. Avildsen
Lean on Me is the rousing, fact based story of high school principal
Joe Clark, who armed himself with a bullhorn and a Louisville Slugger
and slammed the door on losers at Eastside High in Paterson, New Jersey.
Brought in as last hope to save the school, he chained the doors shut to keep
troublemakers out and strivers in. Parents fought him. Teachers fought him.
But lots of kids loved him. Clark turned Eastside around, becoming a national
symbol of tough love education and appearing on the cover of Time.
Morgan Freeman (Street Smart, Clean and Sober, Driving Miss Daisy)
electrifies as the hard-nosed and controversial educator Joe Clark.
On the other side of the camera an Academy Award winning director
John G. Avildsen, a proven master of dynamic, action filled audience
pleasers with his Rocky, The Karate Kid films and now Lean On Me.
"If you students don't succeed in life," says Clark, "I want you to blame yourselves."
His message is simple: Don't lean on excuses. Don't lean on drugs, crime or anger.
Lean On Me... and learn.
