Free Movie Night
6:00 PM
St. John's Building, Room 214
Helena Center of Creative Living presents September Free Movie Night. This month's feature is FREEDOM WRITERS.
Hilary Swank stars in this story about a teacher in a racially divided school who gives her students what they've always needed - a voice. Swank plays Erin Gruwell, the real-life teacher at Long Beach's Wilson High, who inspired her students to overcome the gangs that divided them and the education system that forgot them. Based on the book The Freedom Writers Diary and supported by a cast of first-time actors who drew from their actual experiences on the street, Gruwell teaches us all an important lesson about tolerance and trust.

Runtime: 2 hours, 4 minutes
Rated: PG-13 (parents strongly cautioned)
