      Can one woman change a class of student´s lives during one school year? Is it possible to open other people’s eyes and look beyond the image?

      Katherine Watson an art history teacher comes to the most prestigious collage were women was train to become good wives and bring up good families. In the movie we can see Katherine as a more modern and freethinking woman who wants her students to reach their fully potential and start thinking for themselves. A hard challenge but determined to make it happen we can see the progress of the 50´s


      society. Even though the world has comed much further in the progress I think this movie has a glint of spirit and inspiration to share.

      To be able to make a difference in a person’s life is like trying to lift one rock to the other side of the road. But to let it influence the whole community, you have succeeded to transfer the whole mountain as well. Whit a bit metaphorical resemblance I was trying to show how hard it is to make a difference that affects the entire society.

      We all know that changes is a part of mankind, but what’s really interesting isn’t what sort of change it is but more how that change was done. In the movie we could really see Katherine trying to reverse her student’s way of thinking through her teaching of art. By bringing other angles and aspects in the subject that you don’t usually think.

      Through just simple things as art she opened her viewer’s eyes in other perspectives. Just like that can way of life be lived and viewed in other courses. Katherine’s way of doing this was through her knowledge about ...

      art and in her own confidence in life.

      I think that’s just what’s necessary if you want to make a difference in what you believe is true. By a strong will and a subject that people easy can relate to. Some people do it through music, lyrics or writing and other in a more scientific way.

      We can see the same procedure of doing this today except now it is more common and accepted to say your own opinion and inform the world. Before you maintained to what was known and kept all new and different

      things outside. Even though this movie was to be enchanted in the 50´s we can get a very good picture and enlightenment about the true involvement about wanting to make a change in something.

      We get a warm feeling and inspiration of self-confidence, determination and courage to take risks and changes in life. Through one teacher, one goal and one purpose. Katherine made a difference by compelling her students to see the world with new eyes.

      What she lacked in pedigree, she made up in brains. She seeked the truth beyond traditions, beyond definitions and beyond the image. Would you be willing to do the same?
