Sports drama, based on a true story

Anthony Mackie: Nate Ruffin, Captain of the Thundering Herd football team
David Strathairn: Marshall University President Donald Dedmon
Ian McShane: Paul Geffen, prominent citizen and MU Board member
Matthew McConaughey: the new Head Coach Jack Lengyel
Matthew Fox: Assistant Coach Red Dawson
Kate Mara: Annie, a waitress in a local diner

Where have all the Film Editors gone? Seems virtually every movie nowadays has to be at least two hours long. Most, if not all, need not be so lengthy. Such is the case for this one.

Having said that, this is a good story about dealing with tragedy but with a twist in that not everyone is in agreement regarding what action should be taken. Football fans will enjoy the on-field activity and we can all relate to coping with setbacks.

for emotional thematic material, a crash scene, and mild language.
