4.5 out of 10 Excellent
Brian from Dublin, 01 Jul 2011
One of the (few) great sports films. Fascinating portrayal of the full story behind 2 players trying to escape the ghetto through basketball. Unsentimental, detailed & absorbing. Unfortunately it does end before the full story is played out with just some summary text at the end. Heard the 2 guys interviewed on Newstalk recently - no fools. This film needs a re-release with a proper epilogue stuck on at the end to let the players tell the full story

What's it about....
It starts with a game, with a basket and a ball. It becomes an epic journey of heartbreak and hope. From city streets to the brink of glory this is an extraordinary story of two boys and two families struggling against the odds and against the system to make their dreams come true. A incredible true story and a unique motion picture experience that you will never forget.
