Coming Soon: Freedom Writers

by Jen on December 30, 2006

-Directed by: Richard LeGravenese

Starring:
-Hilary Swank, Patrick Dempsey, Imelda Staunton

Since I was about ten, writing has been something that has played a role in who I am and who I want to be. It can move mountains and change lives. This idea is the driving force behind this film which stars Oscar winner Hilary Swank and Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey and looks like it’s something worth your time.

It’s the story of a dedicated teacher who wants to show her students that no matter who you are or where you come from, their voices matter. She reaches out to inner city kids and has faith in them when in the past others haven’t. As someone who is in school to be a teacher, the idea of this story moved me in a tangible way. All of us want to feel like we matter in the world. Sure, our parents show us the way but a teacher can give you the tools to make it happen. Go see this movie, and when it’s over think about how you want to change the world. Then make it happen.

Freedom Writers opens January 17th.
