• TOP NOTCH (my top choices)
• HONORABLE MENTION (well worth watching)
• YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER (I like them but you might not)
• CLASSICS (Great movies up through the 1960s - many don't have any rating)

 Haley Joel Osment, Michael Caine, Robert Duvall   

Summary -  The true story of Jim White who moves his family after losing his last job as a football coach. He sees that some of the students are worth starting a cross-country team and turns seven students with no hope into one of the best cross-country teams.

Cautions - Watch out - you will be inspired and moved to tears

Commentary - Yes it's a feel-good movie about triumphing over adversity but it's so much more than that. It's authentic. It comes by it's emotional journey honestly and as a result it's a movie that sticks with you and makes you see the world as having the potential to be a better place. Wonderfully directed and amazingly acted, it captivates you from beginning to end. I kept waiting for a slow time when I could go get a snack, but it never came. Sit down with family or friends and prepare to be inspired.
