For our opening gala this year, we're delighted to present the UK Premiere of Freedom Writers. Based on the actual journals of disadvantaged students at a Long Beach (California) high school, detailing the violence and trauma of their lives, the film isn't only about an amazingly dedicated young teacher, it's also, emphatically, about some extraordinary young people. With a sensitive, vastly impressive performance by Hilary Swank and blessed by the contribution of Imelda Staunton and a gifted group of young actors, the film has already wowed audience and critics in the USA.
