Freedom Writers  +5
Brilliantly written, students in Long Beach, CA after the Rodney King riots write Journals that they later compile into a book.
They compare they city, the jails and the schools as being the same, that we separate ourselves into tribes. We see a new teacher adopt a classroom and make them a family. This family gets to meet the woman who hid Anne Frank and write a book that was published in 1999 that was used as the basis for the script.
This is powerful, moving and makes me feel better for having seen it. It gets a full 5 out of 5 stars.
