Because it’s about Fighting the Power! Teenage Rebellion! and finally, a teacher not trying to make robots – one that cares and we all wish we’d had…

Its also about love, and regret, and what happens when you stifle people who need to be free (and if I keep thinking about that movie more, i’m going to start crying)...
