Academy Award®-winning director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) delivers another provocative film experience with his compelling and inspirational examination of American public education in Waiting for "Superman", arriving on DVD on 9th May 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment.

Named the Best Documentary of the year by the National Board of Review, and cited by the American Film Institute as one of the year's best movies, Waiting for "Superman" has launched a movement to achieve real and lasting change in the nation's schools.

The film depicts the moving and poignant struggles of real-life students and their families and the efforts of educators and reformers who are working to find viable solutions within a dysfunctional system. A stirring, must-see clarion call that has left audiences inspired and motivated to make a difference, Waiting for "Superman" is truly a powerful, passionate, revolution-inducing documentary.

"I think that every kid, no matter where they are born or what they have been given in life, deserves a great education and a piece of the American dream. The idea of education reform becomes a lot less abstract and a lot more compelling when you see these beautiful kids and realise all their potential", said director Davis Guggenheim. "Now there are reformers out there who are defying the odds and proving it's entirely possible to create outstanding schools even in the most troubled neighbourhoods. That's what drove me to tell this story and to make this movie."

"Even if you don't have kids, you should care about public education", said Lesley Chilcott, producer of Waiting for "Superman". "If we want to solve global warming, poverty, health care and the economy, we need to have an educated society. Education is ground zero for tackling all these issues."

In addition to the inspirational film, the DVD feature four additional stories of real students and teachers, commentary by Davis Guggenheim and Lesley Chilcott, a conversation with Davis Guggenheim, the making of John Legend's original song "Shine", which was composed specifically for the film, a look at what's changed in education since the movie was filmed and more.
