One of the best family movies out there

Quite traditional, but rated it higher because well, of rugby and its presentation. This is probably the biggest film ever to portray rugby in any form. And it presents morals in a plain, standout fashion. The movie doesn't create drama for the sake of drama (like so many family-oriented movies do). This is a true family-oriented movie that doesn't shy away from the tough stuff and doesn't bloat itself with unnecessary drama.

Forgiveness and Finding Self

Based upon a true story, this is a feel good, sports themed values story highlighting the drama surrounding the pain of a son trying to living up to a mis focused Father's personal agenda. Subject matter best for 13+. Biblical Principles work their way in thru an exceptional coach leading to an impactful, though somewhat predictable but you don't care because it's a good movie, ending.
