REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's rich territory for human drama; unfortunately, the film is more interested in slapping a charter-school Band-Aid on the gushing wound than exploring dramatic possibilities..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..like a scrambled-egg mix of "Erin Brockovitch" and "Dangerous Minds," with the worst bits of both: It may be enthusiastic, but it sure is unfocused..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Film.com]
