I knew nothing about this film before I saw it. All I knew is it did not look like something that I didn't want to watch, but I was pleasantly surprised how good this film is. The film was widely released but did not do to well in the box-office so I think that is why everyone, including me, wrote it off. The acting was great and it was a pretty good, and compelling story. It also makes you think about our education system and how we can improve it and help out others. The only complaint is it was a tad too long but other than that it is worth a watch.
It is a pretty clean movie, has a tad of profanity but other than that it is a feel good, inspirational movie.
