Oscar(R) Nominees Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis lead a stellar cast in this rousing drama inspired by actual events. Frustrated by her dyslexic daughter's struggles at a failing inner-city school, Jamie Fitzpatrick (Gyllenhaal) tries to enroll her somewhere else. When this fails, Jamie recruits a disillusioned but caring teacher (Davis) to try to fix the broken school. Soon, the women find themselves in a tense battle against apathy, hopelessness, and powerful interests. Oscar(R) Winner Holly Hunter and Oscar(R) Nominee Rosie Perez also star in this inspiring story that shows how profoundly parents can affect their kids' education.
