Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full ride to college, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is stuck in a meaningless job and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boy starts to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?




  • Ben Afflecks best performance to date!

    By Anthoni
    Ben Afflecks gives it his all as an alcoholic coach building a basketball team from failure to success. Very emotional and hard hitting with Ben giving the finest heart felt performance of his career.
  • Best Basketball Movie Ever!!!
