We gave it an B-

In her first lead role since her Oscar-winning performance in 2004’s Million Dollar Baby, Hilary Swank is Erin Gruwell, a new teacher whose idealism gets rocked by the harsh realities of the inner-city classroom. Slowly, she breaks through their tough shells, urging them to tell their stories in diaries and opening their eyes to possibilities beyond the streets. Also starring Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy); written and directed by Richard LaGravenese (Living Out Loud, A Decade Under the Influence).
