Product Description

Product Description

Based on the remarkable true story of Erin Gruwell and the Freedom Writers project. Erin Gruwell (Academy Award winner Hillary Swank)'s passion to become a teacher is challenged by a group of Black, Latino, and Asian gangbangers who hate her even more than they do each other. Then Erin listens to them in a way no adult has ever done, and she begins to understand that for these kids, getting through the day alive is enough. They are not delinquents but teenagers fighting a war of the streets that began long before they were born. She gives them something they never had from a teacher before respect and an understanding of peers who have had the same experience. Written and directed by Richard LaGravanese, Produced by Danny DeVito & Stacy Sher. The soundtrack features such artists as Common featuring will-i-am, Cypress Hill, Pharcyde, and Talib Kweli.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerfull and Moving Feb. 6 2007
By E. Spalter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Movie was one of the most powerful films I have ever seen. In my opinion it's the best movie to come out in years.

The soundtrack is a very rap oriented disc, with popular songs by 2PAC, Naughty By Nature, Cypress Hill and Montell Jordan. But there are 3 musical scores by Mark Isham that are simply masterful, and will compliment any soundtrack collection you may have. Isham's track Anne Frank is one of those tunes that express the movies sentiment, even without a visual aid. It's a truly heartfelt tune, that is one of the most aptly composed pieces ever to grace a movie. There are also 2 tracks with Miri Ben Ari, aka "The Hip Hop Violinist", one of todays most talented musicians and a true virtuoso.

But the gem of this album, the one track that makes this disc worth buying, is Will.I.Am's Dream featuring Common. Will.I.Am is one of todays most influential song writers, but this song, set to Martin Luther Kings "I have a Dream" speech, may be his best work to date.

A great movie with a great soundtrack, both should be a staple of any CD and DVD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great teachers make the difference! Feb. 7 2007
By Richard A. Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While the soundtrack is great, you must see the movie to truly appreciate it. The music makes the images and themes of the movie come alive with emotion and sensitivity. The story is inspirational both of the struggles the teacher had to connect with her students and the incredible challenges the students had to face in their day-to-day lives. Great soundtrack!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dream & Listen!!! April 3 2012
By light & shadows - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most people say the only great song on this disc is A Dream by Common and Will.I.Am, and I used to agree. Then I listened to Listen!!! by Talib Kweli and I realized that song was just as good if not BETTER!!!! Check it out! Talib Kweli is so good! This is a great CD overall though, you should just buy it and listen to it all the way through.
