Last night I was given a free pass to see the movie Won't Back Down before its' release on September 28th. It was an AMAZING, inspirational movie based on actual events!
It was a powerful, realistic portrayal of how some schools are failing our kids. I was shocked to see Maggie Gyllenhaal (who is known for being a big liberal), star in a movie that showed how teachers' unions are protecting bad teachers and as a result our kids aren't getting the education they deserve.
It was also a picture of what it means to fight for something you are passionate about, despite the naysayers. I must confess, I'm always a sucker for these type of movies.
I'm not sure why I or the others' at the theater were picked to get the free passes, but you could tell most of the people in the audience loved it. I found myself and others clapping, gasping and crying at certain parts. I highly recommend seeing it when it comes out on September 28th, I give it 5 stars!
