The film focuses on the character of the coach of a girls' basketball team in a small town in western Oklahoma during his first years at the school in 1964-66. Coach Keith was our special speaker for our 50th Alumni High School Reunion this past March 2005. This film was a wonderful surprise. Meanwhile, big man in town Ellis Brawley Bruce Dern can't stand Driscoll and his newfangled idea of empowering female athletes. Driscoll immediately finds himself in conflict with the head of the school board, Ellis Brawley, who is also the great-great grandson of the town's founder, the owner of the bank, and the most influential man in the town. Some I am sure Dad embellished - you'd have to know dad - he was a great story teller.
I know, I know, you don't believe me. Driscoll and Jean fight the system and work to heal a wound in their own marriage. Sadly the film doesn't know whether it should be funny or serious. It is clear to see the whole family is special. Pay-Per-View videos will become available to watch once the event starts, will be available for playback for 24 hours following the event, and are not available for Download. What makes you a bad person? The storyline is very simple: in the 60's a young basketball coach moves to small town Oklahoma to coach the male team of the local high school but he's rerouted instead to the female team.
I know, because I grew up during the very era the movie portrays. The following year his team shows a marked improvement, and they become a tough team to beat. I wish he'd seen it with me, because this story is a story for everybody. Of course, the Lady Cyclones are up to the task of proving Brawley wrong. Last accessed: February 10, 2010.
On the other hand, some people are calling it a Christian film, but it is not no alter call or come to Jesus moment. The superintendent did not ask Brawley about the hire, and now is off recovering from a medical condition. The thing stinks of lazy writing, amateur directing and below average acting. Driven by their caring young coach, the girls determine to play as hard as the boys, even. He requested to keep the book name and the movie name the same but that was nixed, also. This movie not only did not take into account the half court 3 on 3 rules of the sixties but also the hair and costuming was more of the 50's than the 60's. It is a moving story where a rag-tag group of small-town girls basketball players begin to believe in themselves because their coach believed in them.
Plus I met Robert the Director on several occasions during the festival and he's such a nice and heartwarming guy, I wish him much success Hey Robert, I'm the one who drove you to the Casino Night from the Amangani ;-. It's a story of his discovering his own mettle and strength, and discovering what he really wants. So, this movie is part and parcel of my family history. I still play the 4th quarter everyday. James Harold Keith Don't skip this movie because this movie didn't got the major releasing company and the art work even mistypped the aspect ratio 16:1 Which is suppose to be 16:9 and actually it was 1. Along their way, Driscoll and the girls overcome several obstacles, most of all, gaining a fan base.
The film is based on the novel Brief Garland by. With the first year behind him and an offer to assist a boys' team at another school, Clay decides to stay on and coach the Lady Cyclones. He arrives to coach the boys team, but is maneuvered into the coaching job for the girls. With his future uncertain, Driscoll begins his task of coaching the girls' team with little understanding of his players. I can tell you the book was written by Harold Keith. Rarely do we find a perfect Christian, or an evil nonbeliever, but rather we live in a reality where often nothing is clear.
The extras are delightful, making it worth every additional penny. This is a film that we can highly recommend for all ages, as it is based upon factual events, exciting and at times riveting in its action. I waited until my husband was out of town to watch this, because I didn't think he'd be into it. With the support, encouragement and insight of his wife Jean, he is able to understand the girls he is coaching and reach them. In one scene is a relative of my daughter and in another scene is something that belonged to my now deceased father. Meanwhile, big man in town Ellis Brawley Bruce Dern can't stand Driscoll and his newfangled idea of empowering female athletes. Lastly, it is most definitely the funniest Christian movie I've seen Miles Fisher and Max Adler are superb and probably the best in terms of the craft of filmmaking something many others tend to put low on the priority list.
The thought of coaching them seems preposterous to Clay Driscoll earnest newcomer Jeffrey Donovan , who travels to Middleton, Okla. It made me open to the beautiful landscape, sky, and so on. It doesn't tell you what to think, but leaves you thinking. Unbeknownst to Driscoll, his drive and commitment to win is infectious. But the basketball team he coaches.
In the sports movie there are a couple of things are needed. Is it for or against Evangelicals? Faced with an under-performing crew of untrained players, the coach begins to treat the girls like boys. Believe me is about 4 frat brothers who start a fake charity so that they can make money to wipe off a college loan. Also there's one thing I should mention is the beautiful background shots of the nature. If it had stuck to being a shameless comedy and they cast actors with a concept of comedic timing then this film might have worked.
