The Film 4.5/5

It's unlikely that many people know about Freedom Writers. The title makes it sound boring; how can writing be an exciting spectacle? The other problem is the first 30 minutes of the movie. It's almost exactly what you would expect and covers familiar ground. There's a chance it would lose viewers who think that the whole movie is going to be predictable.

It isn't.

The movie opens with riot scenes in Los Angeles and we hear a brief narration from one of the key characters, Eva (April Lee Hernandez). It shows her father being wrongly-convicted of a crime. This event confirms in her mind that she is right to hate all white people (as the cops were white) and anyone from another culture. She's a member of a gang and happy with her role in life.

Then we meet Erin Gruwell (Swank), who is a first-time teacher at Woodrow Wilson High School. She teaches English and is naive about what she'll face in the classroom. She believes that none of the rules apply to her because she cares, and that she can succeed where everyone else has failed. She thinks she can change the world.

This movie would make a great discussion project for youth age 12 - and older and high school aged. Also a useful tool for jr high and high school teachers to incorporate into their curriculum around social issues and marginalization.

Great movie that resumed well the book. The actors are great too. Make sure to bring a box of tissues because you'll probably cry at the end.

It's not something was haven't seen before, but the nice thing is that it's based on a true story. Too bad we don't have a lot of teachet like her.
