Two mothers, one played by Viola Davis, who is also a teacher, and the other portrayed by Maggie Gyllenhaal, are extremely upset about the lack of attention to their crumbling inner city school.
They don’t just complain about it. These mothers work to change things and refuse to back down when up against as the publicity for the movie, Won’t Back Down, puts it “entrenched bureaucracy.”
The drama boasts a stellar cast from top to bottom. Award winning British actress Marianne Jean-Baptiste is in the role of the head of the Board of Education in the film.
