They Laughed; They Cried; They Stood and Applauded, 24 July 2003
Author: mandy-1 from California

This documentary about kids in a really tough L.A. school attempting an unlikely production of Thorton Wilder's "Our Town" rocked the 2003 Palm Springs Film Festival. Throw out any preconceptions you have about dry, dull documentaries. This one plays like a well scripted, well cast comedy/drama only it's real. The audience laughed; they cried; they stood up and applauded at the end. Then they awarded this low budget gem the Audience Favorite Award out of 180 films including Golden Globe and Oscar submissions from near and far.

I understand it will be out on DVD in August from The Film Movement. This one is worth searching for if want to be inspired, touched deeply, and cheering for the good guys.
