Melanie Mendez-Gonzales of ¿Qué Means What? was my source for tickets to the preview of “Won’t Back Down”. She’s published her own review: “Won’t Back Down – Review”, Melanie Mendez-Gonzales, ¿Qué Means What?, September 28, 2012. Melanie sums up the movie’s message: “Anything is possible when you don’t give up.”
Blogger Erica Bodker also won preview tickets from Melanie. Here is Erica’s fun, thoughtful, and personal review: “(Won’t Back Down) Date Night!!”, Erica Bodker, Walking In My Shoes, September 25, 2012.
All three of us were crying during that movie.
Newsweek offered a little background on the movie’s writer/director: “Daniel Barnz: New Movie Makes Him Teachers Union Whipping Boy”, Lloyd Grove, Daily Beast, September 24, 2012.
