|An ordinary man, an extraordinary life. It’s not about the direction you take . . . It’s about the direction you give . . . The year is 1965. Glenn Holland, a composer who is convinced he is destined to write an historic opus, takes a job as a music teacher to pay the bills. As the years unfold the joy of sharing his contagious passion for music with his students becomes his new definition of success. Mr. Holland’s Opus – his symphony – is not one of fame or fortune. It is a symphony of life.
