Fresh: All other credits are pro, with a special nod to Peter Deming's subtly nuanced camerawork.
- David Stratton, Variety, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Fresh: Meryl dominates the proceedings. She simply disappears into the role, and the movie, for all its educational impulses, becomes about watching her do it.
- Derek Adams, Time Out, Saturday, June 24, 2006
Inspiring true story with good acting and a compelling narrative. A nice change of pace from Wes Craven.

it wasn't bad, despite the fact how much i despise the cliched inner city kids can do sports/be intelligent/sing/spell/play an instrument despite GREAT ODDS and there's always a random kid dying or doing drugs or something. and meryl streep is great at playing angry women.
