Raise Your Voice is a coming-of-age story centered around a small-town singer, brokenhearted by the death of her brother in a car crash, who had secretly submitted her for a summer session at a performing arts academy in Los Angeles. In the performing arts academy, she experiences a whole new way of life in the big city, far from the small town lifestyle she's used to.

I love this movie and find it inspirational. Some people may not, so why even bother watching it? You don't have to like it, but anyway, if you do, then great. This movie is unlike all those other pointless movies (Ex. Confessions of a teenage drama queen, Freaky Friday). Instead, it proves a point. If you're suffering currently, you're not alone. Just know that someone's got it worse than you and sometimes you just have to push your limits and as the movie is mainly about, raise your voice. Don't hold back because eventually, you've got to let it all out. I think Duff portrays her character's role rather well. It may contain some profanity, but I'd still advise people of all ages to watch it.
