Goofs

Although the movie supposedly takes place at Smith College (in Massachusetts), in the scene where Zoe and Alice share ice cream, the two are eating Dreyer's ice cream, which is only sold on the West Coast - the exact same brand is marketed on the East Coast as Edy's, which is what they should be eating.

A must to watch!
24 August 2013 | by melizsasmellyfeetSee all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Mrs Washington goes to Smith should be shown worldwide. Because this movie will definitely inspire people all around the world especially the youngsters.

I truly love this movie because of it's positiveness. It also implies, your plans will succeed if you're determined and put more efforts on whatever you do, regardless your age. Therefore, if you plan to go back to school/college, why not? No one ever stop learning, anyway. But this doesn't mean you can take your studies for granted just because you know you can come back again someday. Because if you have it in your hands right now, make full use of it and struggle as hard as you can. Although you may come across many challenges and even failures, but don't give up yet. Someday, it will lead you to success!

Truly inspiring I must say! A worth watching movie, you guys!
