Great cast and an even better script make this movie like ten times better than Freedom Writers or other similar movies. Both touching AND uplifting. I love how Denzel's performance is very low-key on camera but very loud and confident off-camera. Far better than Antwone Fisher as well. The one annoyance I have, and it's mostly because I used to be on a debate team, is that they are always telling the truth and arguing for the truth in these debates whereas that's rarely, if ever, a winning strategy in actual debating. It's also annoying how they always get to debate the 'right' side of the debate. Apart from that and a little too much melodrama in the last 15 minutes, it's a really great film.
