This was an excellent movie, one that Americans like myself will fall in love with. It's a movie about overcoming loss, which we all have faced. It's a movie about persevering during adversity and overcoming your problems to become successful. Marshall University went through a lot and this movie told a wonderful story. Strathairn is wonderful. So is McShane. Matthew Fox has turned into a film star. Go see it, with the entire family. What a superb holiday film. It's emotional, but well worth it.
