This movie appears not be in wide release, at least in my area, but I
would ask any parents with children in the 5th grade and above to
consider seeing this move for the many messages and insights this film
presents. Based on a true story of a four immigrant high school
students in Arizona and their quest to compete in a prestigious
robotics competition, you will find yourself by movie's end cheering
and inspired while shedding a few tears along the way.
George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis, Marisa Tomei and Esai Morales provide good performances, but the real stars are the four young actors who portray the students. Their performances will draw you into their world and give you a brief glimpse into lives that few Americans have seen.
While the recreation of the competition itself is as intense as a sports movie, it is the path and the detours these four boys must make on the road to the competition that makes one contemplate aspects of our education and immigration policies.
Make sure to stay through the entire film to see pictures and information about the actual participants and what they did post high school.

Four Hispanic high school students form a robotics club under the leadership of their school's newest teacher, Fredi. With no experience, 800 bucks, used car parts and a dream, this rag tag team goes up against the country's reigning robotics champion, MIT. On their journey, they learn not only how to build a robot- they learn to build a bond that will last a lifetime.
