Trivia

When the music teacher covers for the boys who are out late, he tells the head of the school that it was a deer he saw in the bushes. The head then comments that there are herds of deer in that area. Berry College, where the movie was filmed, is in fact home to thousands of deer that wonder among the academic buildings and dormitories. See more »

Perfect Harmony TV movie.
4 October 2014 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Nice TV movie I first saw in high school, about (summary thanks to an IMDb member), a new choirmaster who tries to reduce some of the prejudice and hostility of some of the students. Paul, a bully who feels he should be lead choir person, is the villain who torments a newcomer. However, fellow student Taylor Bradshaw is impressed by the music of newcomer Landy, the grandson of Zeke, the school caretaker. Zeke joins in some of the activities of the black community known as River Town. Sanders is also impressed by Landy's abilities and attempts to get him involved with the choir.

It's a good movie that gives the message of friendship, acceptance and courage, and it also gives a message about prejudice and overcoming adversity.

Overall, not a masterpiece due to somewhat plot, but it's a nice film for everyone nonetheless.

Grade B-
