The racial tensions inside a newly integrated Alexandria, Virginia, high school in 1971 spill over onto the football field, where new head coach Denzel Washington battles resentment on both sides to mold his players into a team...and into friends. Based on a true story, this powerful drama also stars Will Patton as the school's former coach, now Washington's at-first reluctant assistant; with Wood Harris, Ryan Hurst, Donald Faison, and Ryan Gosling (in his feature film debut). 114 min. Soundtrack: English. Also includes a DVD version of the film. Two-disc set.
