Review

  An unfortunate accident leads to the demise of the French teacher in a suburban school and an immigrant from Algeria is hired to replace her. He soon finds though that helping children deal with grief is no small feat especially given the principal's desire for life to return to normal as quickly as possible.  Along the way we see that Monsieur Lazhar has lost loved ones as well so helping the children may be a form of catharsis for he himself.
