We Are Marshall

We Are Marshall
[DVD We]

The true story of how Marshall University rebuilt its football program after a devastating plane crash in November, 1970. Nearly the entire team and coaches were killed along with fans and boosters who were also on the plane - no one survived the crash. A very emotional film as you watch the town and university as a whole, and the individuals, try to pick up the pieces and move on. One does not need to be a football fan, nor a fan of Matthew McConaughey to enjoy this movie. McConaughey plays a very likable character who is dedicated to his family. Football is merely the backdrop for this very moving tale of healing. An excellent story. -- recommended by Charlotte K.
