Overview
How can you speak if you can't find the words? Kristen Stewart (Panic Room, Cold Creek Manor) stars as Melinda, a high school outcast who has been stunned into silence by a traumatic event. How will she discover the courage to find her voice...and speak out?

Based on the acclaimed, award-winning novel by Laurie Halse Anderson, SPEAK also features excellent performances by Elisabeth Perkins (Weeds, Must Love Dogs, Finding What I Want, Cats and Dogs, Big), D.B. Sweeney (Brother Bear, Hard Ball), and Steve Zahn (Sahara, Riding in Cars with Boys, Daddy Day Care, National Security).

With its blend of honesty, humor, and hope, this is the rare film that has the emotional power to speak to everyone. Don't miss it.
