Inspiring documentary about the relationship between a dedicated, if unconventional, Seattle high school girls' basketball coach and his players, particularly a talented and tough inner-city prodigy whose off-court circumstances threaten to derail her dreams of attending college. Filmed over a seven-year period, director Ward Serrill's "Hoop Dreams"-esque movie balances human and athletic drama in exploring race and responsibility while imparting a message about teamwork and second chances that even nonfans can appreciate. Some crude expressions and an instance of rough language, as well as mature themes, including teen pregnancy and sexual abuse, limiting its appropriateness to older adolescents and up. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
