The First Grader

National Geographic Entertainment presents this BBC film based on the true story of an illiterate Kenyan and former Mau Mau rebel who, at the age of 84, decided to go to school for the very first time. Old guy, cute kids, sympathetic teacher. It's precisely as "inspiring" and "uplifting" as you're expecting. 103 minutes PG-13.
