To Sir, With Love

Just watched ‘To Sir, With Love’ (1967). Amazing to see it though modern eyes — I spent half the film thinking about how many safeguarding issues it was accumulating as we went along. A chunk of casual racism that I am sure fit with the times but is astonishing now, gigantic milking of the title song throughout and an obvious plot that didn’t go very far. But strangely compelling. Having The Mindbenders play the finale was fun. 6/10.
