Synopsis:

Named the Best Documentary of the year by the National Board of Review, and cited by the American Film Institute as one of the year’s best movies, Waiting for “Superman” was called “an electrifying call to action” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), and has launched a movement to achieve real and lasting change in the nation’s schools.  The film depicts the moving and poignant struggles of real-life students and their families and the efforts of educators and reformers who are working to find viable solutions within a dysfunctional system.
