Based on a true story. I wish they had explained whether the coach stopped coaching because he was fired. I presume that is what happened.
If you are looking for an inspirational film, a story that is true and is one of over-coming daunting obstacles- then this is for you. Set in the early 1970's in Alabama where racial tensions are high, this is what happened to a team that experienced a remarkable transformation. Be sure to watch the real life footage under special features that confirms with first hand experiences this story. You don't have to be a football fan to understand this film. I recommend it!
Directors comments and the "Story of Woodlawn" in the special features section is SUPER.
Basically a good story that got a little over the top with the religious message. It is definitely a top-notch sales-job for Christianity.
Very good movie! I didn't want it to be over! I love Jesus too! :)
Very very good movie! Amazing football scenes! Its enjoyable even for a person who doesn't know a lot about football!!
It's the big, gangly, awkward new kid in school, on the surface, nearly everything's wrong with this guy, but he's got such heart you gotta love him anyway.
Adding this film to my recommendation list. Very pertinent to today's issues as well. My favorite line of the movie is "go where you can make the most difference".
The main story, of course, is of Tony Nathan and breaking the race barrier. Equally important, though, is how he rescues the girl he loves.
Watched this Sept 30 2016, great movie, and I'll watch it again.
Very inspirational Christian film
