This is such a great movie. I waited for months for it to come out. It won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2011, but it was never widely released until now. It’s a documentary about an inner city high school football team in Memphis. It’s about the team trying to rise above its reputation as a loser, typically going 0-10 each season. But it’s also about so much more than that. It’s about the team members themselves as they try to rise above their circumstances and make something of themselves despite the odds that are stacked against them. It’s definitely worth checking out.
