Inspiring fact-based sports drama, set against the background of the civil rights movement of the late 1950s and early '60s, in which a hard-driving Syracuse University coach (Dennis Quaid) hones the skills of a gifted African-American football player (Rob Brown) while he, in turn, challenges the coach's conservative reaction to changing times. Director Gary Fleder's rousing tribute to the first African-American recipient of the Heisman Trophy, which also features Omar Benson Miller as the star's best friend, highlights the role faith played in shaping his values while effectively personalizing the problems and lessons of the era. Brief nongraphic premarital sexual activity, occasional crude and crass language, some uses of profanity and racial slurs; possibly acceptable for older teens. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III—adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG—parental guidance suggested; some material may not be suitable for children.
