Won't Back Down

ages 9+ | 100 % Say It's Worth Your Time

Jamie Fitzpatrick (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Nona Alberts (Viola Davis) are two women from opposites sides of the social and economic track, but they have one thing in common: a mission to fix their community's broken school and ensure a bright future for their children. The two women refuse to let any obstacles stand in their way as they battle a bureaucracy that's hopelessly mired in traditional thinking, and they seek to re-energize a faculty that has lost its passion for teaching.

    Parents want the best education for their kids and are willing to fight for it. Viola Davis is wonderful. A little over dramatized in places but good.
