: 13+ Synopsis
: Intensely watchable movie based on a true story. What Parents Should Know
: Parents need to know that this film deals with mature themes and language. Gangs that threaten violence, and a chain-wielding teacher pursues three kids through the school. There's a lot of macho bravado in and out of the classroom. Parents undermine their kids' academic dreams, and a teacher refuses to believe her underprivileged students are capable of excellence. —Common Sense Media
