Brief Synopsis – Based on the true story of a Clemson University athlete who due to family issues, needed to hide his younger brother in the dorm, risking his scholarship.
Bottom Line – Really powerful story that says so much about the characters and moreso about the concept that Clemson instills in its athletes and students. The story moves along at a great pace and allows us to get a better understanding of ow these characters lived their lives with integrity even if it conflicted with the written rules. The connection between the two main characters is great and allow us to see how much love they had for one another not just as brothers but as a father and son. The cast is great and help make things so realistic. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In post-game commentary, sports announcers stated that the level of crowd noise for the second “running down the hill,” the Clemson Tigers’ signature entrance to Death Valley, described by sportscaster Brent Musberger as “the 25 most exciting seconds in college football,” recreated at the start of halftime, was actually louder than for the real team at the start of the game. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
