We Are Marshall
I just got finished watching We Are Marshall. This was an outstanding movie. Based on the true story of the 1970 Marshall University football team, almost all of whom were killed in a plane crash and the team, university, and town trying to rebuild after the tragedy. It is a very moving and emotional film. The film really did a great job of showing how much the team helped the family and community heal. With so many hurdles to overcome, it really was almost a miracle that they were able to field a team at all. It's inspiring to see what a few determined people can accomplish. The acting was terrific all around. From the big name actors down to the guys I've never seen before, they were all convincing. Sure, the 70's fashions are an eyesore, but it's worth putting up with to see a great story.
