Sidney Poitier, who in 1955 played a student in a tough inner-city high school, portrays a teacher assigned to a similar institution in To Sir, With Love. Unable to find work as an engineer, Poitier accepts a teaching post in London’s East End slums.

Sweet story, but unfortunately offers nothing new or fresh. A teacher winning his students over is a scenario that has been explored countless of times. The 60s flare and swinging London basically save the movie, along with some individual scenes and performances, but otherwise pretty pedestrian.
