This movie is great! The teachers are total badasses who foster confidence and courage in their students. I love that you get to see the teachers and students at school and also in their homes so you get a sense of what their lives are like. It is awesome to see the students gain confidence throughout the school year. I hope to someday be as brave as everyone in this film.
