There are some things in "Won't Back Down" that is in need of discussion, such as the state of Education, and this movie reminds us of that but couldn't do more. The only thiong that I like about this movie is Maggie Gyllenhaal who is upset over the treatment of her daughter. She teams up with Viola Davis to take on the Adams school district. The only characters that I care aboiut is Gyllenhaal who is the best thing that came out of this movie. I love her daughter too. Those are the only two people that I care about, but this movie is dwarf compared to a much better movie on Education. "Waiting for superman" is a documentary about the Education system in crisis and this movie has solutions. The solutiuons in this movie are overcome by a movie that wants to be a made for television movie.
