This is a 1973 drama directed by James Bridges, based on John Jay Osborn, Jr.'s 1970 novel of the same name.
It is about James Hart, a first-year law student at Harvard Law School, and his experiences with Professor Charles Kingsfield and his daughter.
It is an insightful, inspirational and thought-provoking story.
