Video Essay: Mr. Holland’s Opus — What Music Is?

Kentucker Audley continues his series of video essays with a new entry that focuses on the classic '90s drama starring Richard Dreyfuss.

The ’90s was the best decade in the history of movies. It produced many epic classics like Good Will Hunting, Dances with Wolves, and many more. Another awesome movie was Mr. Holland’s Opus. What makes it so special was because it showed his whole life, of course his love of music, but also his personal life. The director also did a tremendous job of putting drama in the movie so it wasn’t boring. Please enjoy my video essay on the movie, and be sure to check out many other video essays because they help you understand important parts of what movies mean and other cool stuff. Thank you.
