Music of the Heart

Music of the Heart is a 1999 American musical drama film directed by Wes Craven and written by Pamela Gray, based on the 1995 documentary Small Wonders. The film is a dramatization of the true story of Roberta Guaspari, portrayed by Meryl Streep, who co-founded the Opus 118 Harlem School of Music and fought for music education funding in New York City public schools. The film also stars Aidan Quinn, Gloria Estefan (in her film debut), and Angela Bassett. It was director Wes Craven's only foray outside the horror/thriller genre, aside from his contribution to the multifaceted and directorially diverse Paris, je t'aime. It was also his only film to receive Academy Award nominations.
