AllMusic Review by

Director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) tackled the American public educational system for his 2010 documentary Waiting for Superman. Composer Christophe Beck (We Are Marshall, The Hangover, Burlesque) does a nice job balancing out the rural and urban atmospheres demanded by the film’s protagonists, dutifully employing strings, soulful piano, and moody fingerpicked guitar wherever the characters and situations demand them.
