Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of WON’T BACK DOWN In St. Louis

By  |  26 Comments

In this powerful story – inspired by true events – of parenthood, friendship, hope and courage, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis portray determined mothers­ who will stop at nothing to transform their children’s failing inner city school. Facing a powerful and entrenched bureaucracy and a system mired in traditional thinking, they risk everything to make a difference in the education and future of their children.

Says director Daniel Barnz (BEASTLY): “My hope is that audiences connect to WON’T BACK DOWN whether they’re a parent or not. The film deals with universal and relatable themes, including taking on something bigger than oneself, and discovering you have the strength to accomplish anything.”
