Pay It Foward : Friday October 20, 2000

Everything in social studies teacher Eugene Simonetís (KEVIN SPACEY) life is in order -- every shirt, every pencil, every person in its proper place. To keep the surface placid means never having to go deeper. And no one and nothing in his life has ever asked him to. Arlene McKinney (HELEN HUNT) is a single mother hanging on by her fingertips, working two jobs, and struggling to raise her son, Trevor (HALEY JOEL OSMENT). She is trying to give him a new life, but in her absence she is losing him. Eugene gives Trevorís class an assignment: look at the world around you and fix what you donít like. But can you fix people? -- © 2000 Warner Brothers

Portugal's Best 
Score = "100"
"Great movie. Great actors. Oscar material. Last year the Academy ""grave robbers"" judges had stolen the Haley J Osment deserved oscar. Maybe this year they get it right. This is the kind of film that made cinema what it is today."
