When the Game Stands Tall
Inspired by a true story, WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL tells the remarkable journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport.
When the Game Stands Tall movie is an incredible inspirational true story that.s all about a losing team that takes its playing to the the highest level thanks to the hard work of a coach who knows his stuff AND loves his team. Football lovers who are all about movies like The Blind Side, Friday Night Lights, Remember the Titans and Invincible, are all going to absolutely love amazing movie. The story takes place in Concord, California and tells the tale of a small Roman Catholic high school for boys whose football team shattered every record for high school sports. Before team, the longest winning streak in high school sports history was 74 games. But once the De La Salle High School football team started winning in 1994, they never looked back and shattered the record with an amazing 151 game winning streak that lasted for 12 years!!! WOW!! The team totally broke every record and were the top football team in the entire state of California 12 times. If that doesn.t make for a great story, then nothing does!! The team.s story is so fantastic that it was turned into not one, but TWO books. The new movie, When the Game Stands Tall, is based on the second book that.s by the same name and which was written by a sports writer who went to the team.s practices and followed them really closely during their streak. Tons of members of team have gone on to have careers in the NFL - people like T.J. Ward of the Denver Broncos, Amani Toomer of the New York Giants, Matt Gutierrez of the Chicago Bears, Derek Landri of the Philadelphia Eagles, the list goes on and on! So now that I.ve teased you with the story, let.s talk about the movie. film stars Jim Caviezel as Coach Bob Ladouceur, the man with the heart who.s the center of the story. Caviezel is known for his role as Jesus a few years ago, and his acting in movie is breathtaking. His depiction of Coach Ladouceur will have you inspired. His wife is played by Laura Dern, who.s beautiful and determined in her supporting role. Also in the film is Michael Chiklis, who lays aside all of those tough guy roles he.s been doing for the last few years to play, well, a tough guy with heart. And then there are these amazing kids who play the members of the football team. The actions scenes from the field are completely believable, and the transformation that you see in the eyes of the young actors, in particular Alexander Ludwig as running back Chris Ryan, is as compelling as film gets. Director Thomas Carter shows steps back and really lets us see inside these characters and become drawn along in wonderfully inspirational story. film is totally must see, and is a great place to go for you to find inspiration for your own life!
