OSCAR ® Nominees Maggie Gyllenhaal (2009, Supporting Actress, Crazy Heart) and Viola Davis (2011, Actress, The Help) lead a stellar cast in writer-director Daniel Barnz’s inspirational 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 ® Winner Holly Hunter (1993, Actress, The Piano) and OSCAR ® Nominee Rosie Perez (1993 Supporting Actress, Fearless) also star in this inspiring story that shows how profoundly parents can affect their kids’ education.
