Erin, a 23-year-old English teacher at a high school in Long Beach, California, is struggling to get through to her unruly students, whose day-to-day reality is governed by racial tension and gang violence. As the fighting escalates, Erin uses the classroom as a space to deconstruct the issues that the young people are facing, encouraging them to write about their experiences of losing loved ones and dealing with hardships. Using the example of the Holocaust to explore the meaning of humanity and persecution, Erin starts making some headway with her students, leading to some brave decisions outside the classroom too. Adapted from the best-selling book by real-life teacher Erin Gruwell, this is a powerful and inspiring piece of filmmaking with a central message of hope and optimism.
This film has one use of strong bad language and moderate violence.
