Synopsis:
Hilary Swank stars in this gripping story of inner-city kids raised on drive-by shooting and hard-core attitude - and the teacher who gives them the one thing they need most: a voice of their own. Dropped into the free-fire zone of a school torn by violence and racial tension, teacher Erin Gruwell battles an uncaring system in a fight to make the classroom matter in her students' lives. Now, telling their own stories, and hearing the stories of others, a group of supposedly "unteachable" teens will discover the power of tolerance, reclaim their shattered lives and change their world.

Gripping drama from LA - Freedom Writers review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
05/05/2009

Based on a true story from the mid 1990's California - and this time it seems not to be an empty claim. A new teacher starts out with high expectations of reforming a very colorful bunch of students from very different backgrounds. Resistance comes from all sides: Students and colleagues, but things happen...moving and uplifting and feels very close to reality (and better than so-called reality-TV).
