Won't Back Down

When it comes to inspirational true-life stories, you can't beat sports teams or teachers. Here, two determined women—one a teacher, one a mother—fight the bureaucracy to transform their children's failing inner city school. Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal star as the No Child Left Behind-bashing parents. If Waiting For 'Superman' didn't change things two years ago, this didactic melodrama isn't likely to either. 121 minutes PG.
