Won’t Back Down
There have been several films in the past focusing on the education system of the society! Won’t Back Down starring Viola Davis, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Holly Hunter, too, centers on how two determined mothers brought about a change in their kids’ failing school!
Jamie Fitzpatrick is a doting mother of Malia Fitzpatrick, who perhaps is not as smart as other kids in her school! However, the kind of punishments she gets and the behavior of the teachers towards Malia leave Jamie frustrated as she plans to overtake the school!
For obvious reasons, this path would not be an easy one! All the politics and the bureaucracy, no matter how powerful, do not soften Jamie’s resolve, as she teams up with Nona Alberts (Viola Davis) Evelyn Riske (Holly Hunter) and finally achieves her goal!
Interestingly, the film is loosely based on real-life events in Sunland-Tujunga, Los Angeles, California! Won’t Back Down should interest parents and kids who have a tough time coping up with their studies due to anxiety and the ill-treatment by their teachers! And if nothing else, the kids should draw inspiration from the title!
Not to forget, this line in the trailer “The system can fail, but a parent can’t” gives away a real strong message!
