HARD LESSONS * (Television Release USA 1986)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

Hard Lessons—Denzel Washington’s early work—serves informative and meaningful entertainment. Strong ethical values, willingness to help others, and successful motivation of all those within one's environment becomes the wonderful focus of this entertainment piece. Uplifting. The  overall story tells a good tale as it builds on positive character development through education.
