Won't Back Down (2012)

Dissatisfied parents and teachers take over a school, literally.

The gimmick: This movie teaches you how to take over a school. It doesn't focus on what happens afterwards. That's because it's a film backed by the school privatisation lobby, and the lobby either doesn't care about what happens after, or doesn't want you to know that none of such recently privatised schools succeeded.

Watch for: bunch of Hollywood liberals suckered into a right-wing project; an 'inspirational' movie going through the motions; very good but very dishonest scriptwriting.
