Lance Clayton is about to get everything he deserves.
Robin Williams stars as Lance Clayton, a man who has learned to settle. He dreamed of being a rich and famous writer, but has only managed to make it as a high school poetry teacher. His only son Kyle (Daryl Sabara) is an insufferable jackass who won’t give his father the time of day. He is dating Claire (Alexie Gilmore), the school’s adorable art teacher, but she doesn’t want to get serious --

Kyle (son): I didn't ask to be born, you know.
Lance (father): Neither did I.
Kyle (son): boo hoo.
This scene will stick with me. I think it's a great film, even though some parts are definitely a stratch. It shows us that sometimes we just get what we get, no matter how we try. And sometimes the best thing you could do is to accept it. It also shows how easy it is to create a wrongful cult based on nothing but own wishful thinking. Great movie. And noone could this role better than Robin Williams.
