A dynamic performance by Tom Cruise fuels this drama of a high school football star who sees a college scholarship as the only way out of the impoverished Pennsylvania steel mill town where he grew up. But Cruise finds his chances at a bright future getting darker when he clashes with his coach (Craig T. Nelson), who also has his eye on a job far away from the burned-out burg. With Lea Thompson, Chris Penn. 90 min. Widescreen; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, Spanish; theatrical trailers.
