Freedom Writers

Spängerskolan, Kristianstad · Senast uppdaterad: 23 mars 2021

From the moment they named themselves the Freedom Writers the students of room 203 changed from a group of apathetic, frustrated students to a closely knit, motivated family. The Freedom writers have continued their mission to teach tolerance and share their story of success. Hilary Swank stars in this gripping story of inner city kids raised on drive-by shootings and hard core attitude – and the teacher who gives them the one thing they need the most; a voice of their own.
