DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - It's a rather slow drama with a fair amount of humor and some heartwarming moments. It's basically the story of a teacher teaching ancient Roman history to young boys and especially to one troublemaker. This movie is similar in pace to "The Dead Poets Society."

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Students of life-lesson dramas featuring charismatic teachers who affect the moral development of their pupils are in the wrong study hall if they think this is Dead Poets Society II.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "It's a relatively light-weight story that is carried more by the well defined characters than by plot developments. In the end, we get a sense that it has all been worthwhile, not only for Mr. Hundert, but for those of us sitting in the audience. It helps, of course, that the movie confounds our expectations yet still delivers a positive message.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "...None of them have the nerve to venture into the tricky ethical quicksand of The Emperor's Club. The movie is too methodical, but it doesn't avoid the hard questions.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "This school-days variation is even gooier and occasionally even tough to take — yet it's so free of mean-spiritedness that softies and Kline fans (though not many others) might enjoy it against their better judgment.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

As I predicted, most moviegoers enjoyed "The Emperor's Club" very much. This is especially true for adults. You'll notice that as the age of the moviegoer increased so did the rating.

I did expect some to not like the movie because of its slow pace. I guess most moviegoers could tell this would be the type of slow drama it was and were ready for it because there really were very few low opinions.

I highly recommend "The Emperor's Club" if you like this type of movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
I predict that most people will thoroughly enjoy "The Emperor's Club," as long as they go in knowing that this is a slow paced story. I would say it's more for the older moviegoer who is entertained by an interesting and sometimes moving story. Don't get me wrong. In my opinions, this is not a boring story. I found it very entertaining, but I like this type of story. However, my twelve-year-old granddaughter found it very boring and my thirty-year-old daughter didn't care for it either.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Arthur Hundert (Kevin Kline) is a dedicated and inspiring Classics professor who has devoted his life to teaching at an elite boys' prep school. When a new student, Sedgewick Bell (Emile Hirsch), the headstrong son of a powerful senator, joins his class, Mr. Hunder's life is inexorably altered. It is a clash of wills and personalities as these two people seemingly battle for the hearts and souls of the other students at St. Benedicts.

Spanning 20 years, the story resumes when Bell, now a powerful and influential businessman, brings the retired Professor back into his life and world. At a reunion of his students, Hundert is faced with the fear that he may have failed the most important challenge of his life - to have been a great teacher.
