Freedom Writers

Sun. Aug. 5


The next film in our Latino Film Series is the Richard LaGravenese film Freedom Writers. A true story that’s worth telling, the film follows a dedicated California teacher as she tries to unify her disadvantaged, racially divided students. Hilary Swank and Patrick Dempsey star in this engaging inspirational drama set during the time of the 1992 race riots in Los Angeles. “Freedom Writers' unabashed earnestness proves unexpectedly powerful.”- Nathan Rabin of the AV Club
