NYT Critics' Pick: In ‘Half Nelson,’ a Student Knows a Teacher’s Secret

In their beautiful bummer about the relationship between a white teacher (Ryan Gosling) and a black student (Shareeka Epps), the gifted young director Ryan Fleck and his writing partner Anna Boden offer a lament for the radical fires of the 1960's and a suggestion for life and politics after the New Left. — Manohla Dargis Read the review
