Inspiring and entertaining film

  • Oct 9, 2011
  • by
A losing football coach (Alex Kendrick) is beset with problems both at his Christian high school and at home with a wife who hasn't been able to have a child. Through prayer, praise, and the firm belief that nothing is impossible with God, things turn around.

Writer/Director/Producer/Star Alex Kendrick and the Sherwood Baptist Church have created an outstanding film. Though the cast is made up of non-professional actors, they are uniformly excellent as are the script and photography. The football scenes are full of solid action and the motivational scenes are realistic and touching.

Highly recommended.
