" First Viewing Viewing Date: January 17th Via: Disney+ (via VPN) Plot: A frustrated composer takes a job as a high school music teacher, assuming it will be temporary while he writes a symphony in his spare time. Instead, he stays with teaching for decades and finds unexpected fulfilment. Rating: 8.4/10 Why Did I Watch It? I've been meaning to watch this for years as it's quite an esteemed movie, and it stars Richard Dreyfuss. I can't stream it in Australia, so I made the most of my VPN."
