Movie Review - Freedom Writers

Today, I watched the movie
Freedom Writers, which stars Hillary Swank as a young teacher who tries to show troubled high school kids in Long Beach, California, that they have a voice that needs to be heard.

I enjoyed this movie very much. I thought that it had a very good message in it, and one that everyone should know about. This movie was very emotional, especially in the scenes where the teacher tells the kids that no one will care about them once they are dead, and the teacher gets divorced. I find it amazing that this actually happened in real life, and I think that it can be accomplished anywhere else. The ending, where the teacher tells the kids that she is still going to be their English teacher for the rest of their high school days was a great ending, in my opinion.

Overall, a great watch. Anyone who wants to be inspired to make a change in their lives should watch this movie attentively.

My Rating: 9 out of 10
