Saw the screening last night.
I came for Jim Caviezel. And the football (always the football).
I was surprised by how good this movie is. And that it is layered giving us more than one look at the central question in which football is a means to an end.
The trailer doesn't really give an idea of how this movie does NOT hit every point with a hammer, but for me it was head and shoulders above The Blind Side or Remember the Titans. And it even gives Friday Night Lights a run for its money. Not in technical know how, but in heart.
Review to come soon.
If you get a chance for an early screening don't wait for me. Go see it.
Opening August 22.
