Assigned the thankless task of teaching freshman English at a gang-infested Long Beach, California high school, a 23-year-old teacher, Erin Gruwell resorts to unconventional means of breaking through to her hardened students: having them keep journals about their violent, troubled lives. Based on a true story, the film stars Hilary Swank as Gruwell.
Seating is provided at One Colorado, but be sure to arrive a little early for best options.
