The main characters in the movie are the same as in the book--the students who eventually become known as the "Freedom Writers" and their teacher, Erin Gruwell.  "Mrs. G.", as they call her, is played by Hilary Swank.  Other character roles include:  Scott Glenn as Steve Gruwell, Imelda Staunton as Margaret Campbell, April Lee Hernandez as Eva Benitez, Mario as Andre Bryant, Kristin Herrera as Gloria Munez, Jaclyn Ngan as Sindy Ngor, Sergio Montalvo as Alejandro Santiago, Jason Finn as Marcus, Deance Wyatt as Jamal Hill, Vanetta Smith as Brandy Ross, Gabriel Chavarria as Tito, Hunter Parrish as Ben Daniels, Antonio Garcia as Miguel, and Giovannie Samuels as Victoria.

Check out the official website of the Freedom Writers ( http://www.freedomwriters.com/ ) for more information.  I've also included a link to books by Erin Gruwell and the Freedom Writers.
