CFDb Review!

A Great True Story about standing together with others, even those you don’t really know all that well!  A film that inspires you to fight for something that you believe in and what can happen if you combine faith with determination.  A Great film for the whole family!

Film Synopsis:

It’s 1971. Cathy Rush is a woman ahead of her time and she’s about to embark on an adventure for the ages.

Recently hired as the coach of tiny Immaculata College, Cathy’s challenges are as imposing as the big-school teams her Macs will face. There is no gymnasium, no fan support, and no money. To top it off, Cathy may not even have enough players for a team!

While it appears the Macs don’t have a prayer, all hope is not lost. With the help of Sister Sunday, a spunky assistant coach and the support of a booster club of elderly nuns, Cathy creates a new game plan that just might bring the team and the school together.

Will the unrelenting drive of this first-year coach spur her rag-tag team to unexpected heights? Or will it create a wedge between the coach and everyone around her? One thing’s for certain: there’s never been anyone like Cathy Rush at Immaculata!

    I was a teen during this time, and it is a reminder of the positive strides women have made in both the workforce and in athletics. I like that it is an honest look at that time in our history without any efforts to sugarcoat or rewrite events.
