How We Determine Our Grades

Instead of playing a swindler, John Travolta finds himself on the other side of the law working as a high profile attorney fighting for justice when eight children die of possible water contamination in A Civil Action. Like the character Linda Moon, Honey Daniels is waiting for her big break in the music business, but in the meantime she teaches hip-hop classes in her Bronx neighborhood to help keep kids off the street in the movie Honey.
