|Synopsis:||Synopsis - Varsity Blues (1999) James Van Der Beek (Dawson´s Creek) leads the action in this exciting, funny coming-of-age story about a small-town high schooler confronting the pressures and temptations of grid-iron glory. At first, backup quarterback Jonathan ´Mox´ Moxon (Van Der Beek) is nowhere close to being a football star. He´s perfectly content to stay on the bench and out of the win-at-all-cost strategies of coach Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight in a powerful performance). But when the starting quarterback is injured, Mox is in the game.. and in direct conflict with his hotheaded coach and girlfriend. Soon everyone in Mox´s football-crazed community will realise there´s not just a new star quarterback in town, there´s a new kind of hero.Synopsis - Hardball (2001) Keanu Reeves, Diane Lane and D.B. Sweeney score in this uplifting story of triumph over adversity that "hits an emotional home run." (George Pennacchio, ABC-TV)Conor O'Neill (Reeves) is a down-on-his-luck gambler in debt to dangerous loan sharks. Desperate for cash, Conor reluctantly takes a job coaching a youth baseball team. The "team" turns out to be a ragtag group of tough-talking kids from Chicago's inner city. Secretly, Conor plans to desert the team after he wins a big bet. But the stakes are higher than Conor imagined: The kids need someone to believe in. As Conor wrestles with his past, the kids start to teach him some lessons that will forever change his future - that responsibility and trust must be earned and hope can appear in the most unlikely places.Synopsis - Coach Carter (2005) In 1999, Ken Carter, a successful sporting goods store owner, accepts the job of basketball coach for his old high school in a poor area of Richmond, CA, where he was a champion athlete. As much dismayed by the poor attitudes of his players as well as their dismal play performance, Carter sets about to change both. He immediately imposes a strict regime typified in written contracts that include stipulations for respectful behavior, a dress code and good grades as requisites to being allowed to participate. The initial resistance from the boys is soon dispelled as the team under Carter's tutelage becomes a undefeated competitor in the games. However, when the overconfident team's behavior begins to stray and Carter learns that too many players are doing poorly in class, he takes immediate action. To the outrage of the team, the school and the community, Carter cancels all team activities and locks the court until the team shows acceptable academic improvement. In the ensuing debate, Carter fights to keep his methods, determined to show the boys that they need to rely on more than sports for their futures and eventually finds he has affected them more profoundly than he ever expected.|
