Oscar Isaac joins cast of ‘Still I Rise’ as Ukulele-playing Teacher

Inspired by America’s current education crisis, the film stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis as two frustrated mothers who team up to transform an inner-city public school.

Oscar Isaac will play Michael Raymond, a sexy, ukulele-playing teacher who helps inspire, challenge and romance Gyllenhaal’s character throughout the film.

Daniel Barnz (“Beastly“) is directing from an original script by Brin Hill, which the helmer then rewrote.
