Tupac, Nazis, gangs, and some out of context footage of the L.A. Riots? That can only mean one thing, we sat in on Erin Gruwell’s class and watched 2007’s Freedom Writers.
Thankfully we didn’t have to go it alone because we’re joined this week by Brandon Collins and Justin Brown of the hilarious Medium Popcorn podcast. Together, we try to make sense of Erin’s teaching techniques, another Mario performance, the harm these kinds of movies can have and much more. Plus, Brandon and Justin help us decide if a few movies on our list are actually white savior films.
