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.
