Summary: America's education system comes under fire in this inspiring tale of a single mother and a dedicated teacher who join forces to fight for reform at a failing Pittsburgh school. With her dyslexic daughter mired in the classroom of a terrible, but tenured teacher, Maggie Gyllenhaal begins a fight for change with the help of an unlikely ally: one of the school's best teachers (two-time Oscar(R)-nominee Viola Davis, "The Help," "Doubt"). Backed by controversial legislation, the pair sets out to take back their school from a stagnant union and stonewalling administrators. Oscar Isaac, Rosie Perez and Holly Hunter co-star. Directed by Daniel Barnz; written by Brin Hill and Daniel Barnz. (PG) (MV)
