Goofs

It is unlikely that John Ehret High School or the cities that it serves (Harvey, Marrero, and Westwego) were flooded during Hurricane Katrina. Ehert is on the West Bank on the Mississippi River (to the south of New Orleans) in Jefferson Parish. Most of the flooding from Katrina occurred in New Orleans proper (Orleans Parish), in St. Bernard Parish to the city's southeast, and in the East Bank sections of Jefferson Parish to the city's west. Most of the West Bank was unaffected by flooding. See more »

Unfortunate!
14 January 2011 | by oliveoyl-1See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie. Too bad that it was not managed properly. The story needed to be told and will be one of the greats as far as I am concerned. The acting is superb, it brings the devastation of Katrina into each American home like no news reports could. It is an injustice to consider this movie just another "out of the ashes" "feel good" story. During the time of Katrina I could not help but wonder why we Americans had allowed the Patriot Act and Homeland Security to start taking over our lives, when mother nature is a much more formidable force than any terrorist acts. This movie made me think about how great people are when they have the resolve to do the extraordinary because of rather than despite insurmountable odds.
