    Teachers See Swank Film for Free


    By WENN| Wednesday, January 24, 2007






    HOLLYWOOD - U.S. schoolteachers can see the new Hilary Swank movie Freedom Writers for free at AMC Entertainment, Inc. cinemas for a week starting Friday.

    The double Oscar winner stars in the film as an idealistic English teacher trying to overcome racial intolerance among her students in a Long Beach, California, high school.

    However, the move to entice teacher cinemagoers follows their unhappiness that Swank stars in the movie--after coming under fire for taking on the role because she never finished high school herself.

    Freedom Writers has so far taken $26.5 million at the box office, where it is currently the fifth most popular film.

    An AMC Entertainment, Inc. representative says, "We hope this (offer) will help express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for all that teachers do, often with very little thanks in return."

    Saw it last weekend. Good film but I'm very disappointed that Hillary didn't even bother to finish high school. The film was very moving and it make me want to snatch up those teens and move 'em all in here with us, impractical as that sounds. Just goes to show you the impact that one person who really cares can make in the live of someone on the edge.

    I didn't care for the sub story of her marriage falling apart because of how dedicated she was to her kids. Patrick "Dr McDreamy" Cannot-Remember-His-Last-Name came across as spoiled, selfish and whiny. You just knew he was going to leave and she'd be better off without him.
