Pressure Cooker (2008)
An uplifting documentary of inner-city kids competing for scholarships to culinary colleges. The wonderful characters, starting with their teacher, a sort of drill sergeant with a heart. The kind of teacher every kid needs â€“ one who isn't afraid to be tough as nails, but underneath is flowing over with love for 'her kids'. She's quirky, odd, unpredictable, and you can see that her students adore her. The students too are a fascinating bunch, from the huge football player who really puts his all into his cooking, to the recent immigrant from a poverty stricken village in Africa who sees America as a land of opportunity in a way very few of us born here can. A lovely film with a sense of humor and a great message.
