Description & Features+

"Waiting For Superman" - When disaster strikes in America, heroes rush in. We've seen it time and time again: when all seems lost, real-life supermen (and women) step up to save the day. But what if, right now, there is a hidden catastrophe spreading quietly, insidiously through our nation's cities, towns and communities - and yet we have the power to stop it? What if our children and their futures - were in peril? Who will become a hero now? From Davis Guggenheim, the Academy Award(R)-winning director of "An Inconvenient Truth", comes another stirring, must-see clarion call of our times: "Waiting for 'Superman'", a deeply personal exploration of the current state of public education in the U.S. and how it is affecting our children. Fueled by his conscience and electrified by the possibilities for change, Guggenheim sets off on a probing journey into the lives of five unforgettable kids whose dreams, hopes and untapped potential reveal all that is at stake at this critical moment. In addressing questions through dynamic storytelling, Guggenheim sparks a vital national conversation and introduces us to a group of education reformers currently defying the odds. But when the credits roll, the story hasn't ended. It has only just begun - because what Guggenheim reveals is that the superheroes we've been waiting for to save our schools are all around us. In fact, they might just be me and you.
