Stand and Deliver – Filtered
Stand and Deliver does just that. This moving, acclaimed crowd pleaser is the dynamic saga of real-life heroes determined to conquer a foe few people dare confront: the National Advanced Placement Calculuc Exam. Edward James Olmos gives a performance of fire and grit as Jaime Escalante, a math teacher at East Los Angeles Garfield High who refuses to write off his inner-city students as losers. Escalante cajoles, pushes, threatens and inspires 18 kids who were struggling with fractions to become math whizzes.
