10/15 at 6:30 pm–8:30 pm
Please RSVP to Sallie Smith
A casual group of movie-lovers gather on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. to watch a film followed by a brief discussion.
The film is based on the true story of a small Central California high school coach (Kevin Costner) that took an unlikely group of immigrant students and transformed them into a distance-running dynasty, culminating with their team win in the 1987 CIF Cross Country Championships.
Track coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) is a newcomer to a predominantly Latino high-school in California’s Central Valley. Coach White and his new students find that they have much to learn about one another, but things begin to change when White realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability. More than just physical prowess drives the teens to succeed; their strong family ties, incredible work ethic, and commitment to their team all play a factor in forging these novice runners into champions.
