The First Grader


Watch The First Grader (2010)

The story of an 84-year-old Kenyan farmer and former Mau Mau terrorist who is fighting for the right to school for the first time in order to receive training that he could never afford.

I watched The First Grader with a pleasure. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. But not with this one :). The term 'Best movie' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of people like as the best. To me the following can be regarded as some of the greatest movie ever made. You just have to watch The First Grader. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Justin Chadwick's films play on emotions and are able to move a more sensitive viewer. Last time I bought this movie in a blu-ray quality, so I decided to upload the full movie here.... Show more
