    Interesting, but not a good movie. The audience score has to be fabricated. No pun intended.

    A documentary with tons of heart "If You Build It" is worth a watch. Telling the story of an impoverished small town, and revolutionary architects who come to teach high schoolers, it is impossible to not fall in love with all of the main characters. The end result is astonishing.

    A really nice doc on a very fascinating idea. It's a great showcase for teamwork and how we could be using education in better and more productive areas rather than sitting students down for over the top math classes that have limited use for most students taking the classes. Here is where you can teach students how to do math for real situations rather than for a test. Overall, it isn't the most compelling documentary but an interesting one at best

    Beautiful film supporting small town public education and helping a small town get back in its feet. Of course when a town has people who don't want to help themselves.... Would have been a better experience if friends of the producers weren't playing on their phones the ENTIRE movie!!
