Hilary Swank stars in this story about a teacher in a racially divided school who gives her
students what they’ve always needed - a voice. Swank plays Erin Gruwell, the real-life teacher
at Long Beach’s Wilson High who inspired her students to overcome the gangs that divided
them and the education system that forgot them. Based on the book The Freedom Writers
Diary and supported by a cast of first-time actors who drew from their actual experiences on
the street, Gruwell teaches us all an important lesson about tolerance and trust.
