Us Rating: ***1/2

Director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) delivers a heartbreaking documentary about public education. Focusing on a diverse group of five kids -- and the lottery system that decides whether they will enter preferable charter schools -- the film draws a compelling portrait of a system in crisis. (Paramount, $30)
