TCP: Freedom Writers

Hi I'm back! I am having my early (blog) vacation... Got a handful of work... stress becomes inevitable. But I am happy to be back and excited as well for this week's episode School Is Fun. I would like to feature Hilary Swank's performance in FREEDOM WRITER! Such a wonderful movie! A challenging movie and somehow I can relate to this... I am handling different kinds of student with different attitude.
Here's the synopsis:
Hilary Swank stars in this gripping story of inner city kids raised on drive-by shootings and hard-core attitude - and the teacher who gives them the one thing they need most: a voice of there 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 tolerence, reclaim their shattered lives, and change their world. 
And the trailer:
Have fun and just ENJOY THE SHOW!

Great movie, I have seen this and was sad at the ending. He marriage suffered due to her eagerness to help those kids who wanted to have freedom in writing.
