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

May 18th, 2011 by Paul Martin

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.
