The movie's director, Vicki Abeles, will be in attendance for a Q&A following the 80-minute documentary, a follow-up to her award-winning film, Race to Nowhere.

This film highlights schools that are at the forefront of innovation and shows what they are doing to engage and inspire students.

Regency Director's Cut Cinema at Rancho Niguel is at 25471 Rancho Niguel Road in Laguna Niguel.

If you can't come to the screening or want to learn more, Ms. Abeles will be discussing her book, Beyond Measure: Rescuing an Overscheduled, Overtested, Underestimated Generation, the following morning, Wednesday, November 2 at 9:30 a.m. at Laguna Hills Community Center.  Her book presents ideas to both parents and schools about how we can take the pressure off our overwhelmed and anxious kids.
