Movie Diary 9/21/2010

Waiting for “Superman” (Davis Guggenheim, 2010). Documentary about the state of education today, with some strongly-worded arguments from people you’ve probably seen on “60 Minutes” and elsewhere, such as Geoffrey Canada and Michelle Rhee. It also follows a handful of kids trying to navigate through the messed-up system, all of whom are banking on a lottery to get into a good school – you can guess how the movie ends. (full review 10/1)
