This movie is probably not appropriate for young children due to some mild profanity and the nature of the story. Without experiencing the toils of high school, there will be little to relate to. But for teens and especially adults, Holland's Opus brings Capra's It's A Wonderful Life into the realm of the 1990's and reaffirms the definition of great cinema. The performances by Dreyfuss and the many others who worked on this film, are nothing short of excellent. The mood, attention to detail, directing -- it's all here. If you missed the opportunity of seeing this movie in the theatre, this is your chance to view my choice for the best film of 1995. You can't watch this movie without feeling just a little better about life.
