FREEDOM WRITERS (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Freedom Writers—inspirational, educational—encourages belief that the world gets better due to good teachers. Great work for Actress Hilary Swank. It’s a little piece of WOW and earns its watch. Good movie for after viewing discussion with children.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This movie shows the dedication necessary to turn a tough educational environment into a productive, fertile ground where minds can expand, grow, and, with freedom, explore the possibility of a richer life through enhancing and strengthening the intellectual world of our mind. It’s a blueprint for helping less advantaged neighborhoods. Thank you to Director Richard LaGravenese for capturing the way heart interest makes a difference in education. Thank you.
