Lean On Me (1989)

My first impression of this movie was that Morgan Freeman, who played the role of principle Joe Clack, was brilliant. This was such a feel good movie for me because it showed how far people will go to help those in need and just do the right thing. From the time Joe Clark took over as the principle of Eastside High School until his students rallied outside of the jail for him, it showed how much one person can do for an entire community. He is the epitome of an educator who is not in it for the paycheck, he actually cares whether the students make it or not.
