Emotional climax from Mr. Holland's Opus with Richard Dreyfuss as Mr. Holland and the enchanting singer Jean Louisa Kelly playing his student who performs this beautiful song to secretly tell her tutor (Dreyfuss) that she needs him (to watch over her).

Holland's surprised wife in the audience starts to ponder and wonder after finding Rowena Morgan's name in the play's brochure. A few weeks ago she overheard her husband composing a new melody calling it "Rowena's Theme". When asked about the name he made up a pretext (even though he's actually loyal to his wife).

However, during this performance she starts to become suspicious as to whether her husband is having an extramarital affair or not. He does not but his face shows that he is tempted and flattered at the same time by the young singer's charm, talent and aspiration.

Dreyfuss and his wife both have a lump in their throats (for different reasons) and so did I when I first watched this most memorable scene, most beautifully sung and orchestrated!

Notice that the lyrics of the song perfectly match the film's interwoven story. Here's an excerpt:

"Although he may not be the man
Some girls think of as handsome
To my heart he carries the key

Won't you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh how I need
Someone to watch over me"

Enjoy this captivating and breathtaking performance by Jean Louisa Kelly and all the other actors who IMHO make this movie unforgettable!
