I would give the movie Ruby Bridges an A+.Chaz Monet was the person who played as Ruby Bidges in movie.One of the people had a little cage for and a little doll that looks like her and wanted her to be dead because all the white people did not want any black people in a school just for white people only.Since Ruby has going to a school only for white teachers and black teachers go to the same school that are for white kids and black kids that can learn from thier teachers.I liked when Ruby and her friend Alison were playing at her old school with all of her friends. I did not like when Ruby was walking to school with the croud of people beside her telling her to go home and telling her they want to poisen her and they want to hurt her because they want any black people in a school for white peole not for black people.Every time she walks to school she would always stop and pray for the white people that wanted to poisen her and hurt her.The croud of people that were standing beside her to go home because the white people did not any black people in a white school.
Ruby was a smart girl when she was 6 year old she had to go to an all white school she was the only kid in the school some kids where not in her class when ruby took a test she had got 100% but miss woodman said that she was going to lower her score at the end of the school year jimmy became her friend
This movie was about Ruby Bridges and how she changed the integragation in the school. Caucasion people said rotten things about her. But one day, she changed the world. I think this movie gets two thumbs up because, this was based on a true story. The person who played Ruby Bridges is Chaz Monet. I like the part in the movie when she prayed for the people. I dislike when her friend’s father wouldn’t let Ruby see her. I give this movie an B+.
I liked about the movie is when Ruby Bridges and Mrs. Henry be like friends and eat lunch together in the class room and when the kids played with her at the end of the movie. And what I didn’t like is when Ruby was getting yelled by the angry mob and when her friend didn’t get to play with Ruby . Ruby Bridges changed the world by going to a white school for so long that the white people in the boycott gave up and put there kids back in the school so I give this movie an A
This movie is excellent, and I highly recommend it. This movie shows the real acts of racisim in the south. I watched this movie in 5th grade, and it has been one of my favorite movies ever since. This girl has a lot of Pride, and believes in herself.
I thought that Ruby Bridges was a good movie because it tells a life of a little girl and she was colored and she had a great education. So they put her in a white school and the parents started to chant because they didn’t want a colored girl in their school. I liked that they accepted her at the end. I disliked the names that they called her the movie was the same because she went to William Fratz school. The difference is in the movie they mentioned Ms and Mr.cole.I give this movie an A+.
What I liked about the movie is when ruby made new friends and she changed whites and blacks can be friends. What I did not like about the movie is nothing. The movie is about ruby is going to a white school there is a mob out side trying to hurt her then the next day ruby was prying for the mob and even when they are saying bad words to ruby she was the only girl in her class room. I will put give it an A+
Chaz monet was playing Ruby in the movie. There was a little girl named Ruby Bridges. The part that I liked was the end when Ruby had friends. I didn’t like when the principal was mean. The difference between the book and the movie was when she forgot ton pray her teacher told her I saw you talking. The thing that is her teachers name was MS.Hennery.
I liked it when Ruby prayed for god. I didn’t like it when she eats candy. I give this movie an A. At the beginning Ruby and her brother were playing baseball everybody was fine until a few people said no black people anymore in this town .So Ruby prayed so nothing would happen to her or to her family people couldn’t go to white people restaurant. The simile of the Movie will be as good as action people.
Ruby Bridges was a black girl she went to a all white school the name of the school is William France school, her teacher’s name was Miss Henry. Her dad’s boss was white a lot of kids that were white started to go to school, a boy named Jimmy wasn’t nice to her, but then he became her friend. Her psychologists name is Bob Coll, but her parents call him Dr. Coll. I would give this movie a A+ because I think that this movie was fantastic. Ruby Bridges changed segregation.
And then they started school. Her teacher loved Ruby Bridges. Everybody hated Ruby Bridges. that he has to pray when he drinks. In the end she made a new friend. I liked the movie, because The summary of Ruby Bridges was that she made a black friend name Alicia. In the middle, she meted a doctor, She was praying to the people, and she told the doctor she was nice, and nobody, was mean to her. I would give the movie a+.
Ruby was born on 1907 in September 8, 1954 Tylertown, Mississippi New Orleans Louisiana. Ruby Bridges was playing by Chaz Monet in the movie. People hated Ruby because of her skin color. She goes to church every Sunday. Mrs. Stein does not allow Ruby and her dad anymore in the store. White children and parents were shouting at Ruby. I didn’t like that the part was white people got angry at Ruby. I gave this movie a A+.
Wonderful family movie about prejudice and ALOT of pride. One little girl rose above the mockery & shame her town threw at her with grace and dignity. Excellent movie for the whole family! It is now my 7 yr olds favorite movie.
I Mrs Trenice would like to see Rudy Bridgers on DVD because if you in your car your children would like to see the movie because I think she was amaze to be the first child to enter in Pulic school.I won't my children to see it I have it on VHS I won't it on DVD because i travel a hole lot. Thank You Mrs Trenice
people go against prejudice for no reason. but when a diffrent kind of person that comes to your school that doesnt look like you , dont spit in there hair, dont tell them i will hang you, dont take your kids out of class.this movie is a wonderful movie. it showed me that never be cruel to others then they wont be creul to you. when you watch this movie look craefulluy and hear carefully at what the hatred say and do to her.
