Woody Harrelson, Cheech Marin and Casey Metcalfe bring us an inspirational sports movie to warm any heart. A former minor league basketball coach is compelled to manage a team of players with complex educational needs. It’s based upon a 2018 smash-hit Spanish film called Campeones, which was in turn inspired by the true story of the long-running Valencian Special Olympics team, Aderes.
Directed by Bobby Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary, Me, Myself & Irene), the film features an authentic cast of performers, many making their feature debuts. This gentle comedy sees a hapless series of missteps, but soon everyone realises that if they work together, almost nothing is impossible.
