this movie was based on a real story. a town was rent senseless when a group of their college football players and supporters died in an airplane crash. the town mourned and mourned for a long time. after all, they have lost sons, husbands and fiances to the crash.
but like the phoenix that rises from the ashes, they managed to pull through. with what? another football team.
now I don’t know whether this is really the reason why they managed to pull through but in this movie, it was about how the team instilled back the life to the town. it was not easy in the first place, where it was like bringing back the dead, but somehow that’s what happened.
I don’t really understand the game, but the americans really love it. this is the only game I think that is not played outside the states hence the name: american football.
but I like the the coach played by …. who was determined that the game is on no matter what. I like the scene where he asked the president of the university whether he proposed to his wife over the phone. because the president had tried without success to get an approval for the football team when he tried calling the powers that be. face to face meeting is better. it is easier for people to refuse to help you when you asked over the phone. but when you see him, that’s a different thing. i’ll remember that when I need to ask someone’s help.
all in all, it’s a bit of a slow movie for me. not much interesting scenes to watch.
