I just finished watching the movie Freedom Writers. What an amazing story. If you have not seen this movie I highly recommend it.
This movie made me laugh and it made me cry. I am in awe of what Erin Gruwell did with this group of children. I am also so shocked at the ages of these kids at the start of the movie and what they had to deal with. These kids are Teens age and younger.
Here is a preview of the movie:
Here is the web-site for the Freedom Writers.
I was never a big Hilary Swank fan, but I have really grown to love her in the last year.
I vaguely remember when this movie came out and I think there was a lot of controversy around it.
If you have seen this movie, what did you think? If you haven't seen it, rent it soon.
