Music of the Heart is a 1999 drama film, directed by Wes Craven and written by Pamela Gray. It was produced by Craven-Maddalena Films and Miramax Films, and distributed by Buena Vista Distribution. The film is a dramatization of the true story of Roberta Guaspari, portrayed by Meryl Streep, who co-founded the Opus 118 Harlem School of Music. The film also stars Aidan Quinn, Gloria Estefan, and Angela Bassett. It was director Wes Craven's only foray outside of the horror/thriller genre, aside from his contribution to the multifaceted and directorially diverse Paris, je t'aime. It was also his only film to receive Academy Award nominations. Wikipedia
