Half Nelson is an honest and elegantly understated drama about a disillusioned and self-destructive teacher whose relationship with a precocious student inspires him to reclaim his own wayward life.
The film stars Ryan Gosling as a young man handicapped by the conflicting forces of idealism and cynicism, and Shareeka Epps, as his pragmatic but hopeful student. Rounding out this collection of exciting young talent are director/writer Ryan Fleck and producer/co-writer Anna Boden, filmmakers who transport us to the edgy urban landscape that is the setting for this fresh, provocative, and emotionally-charged story about friendship and the possibility of redemption in an unforgiving world.http://www.halfnelsonthefilm.co.uk
