About this movie

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?

Ruhiges Drama der schleichenden Alkoholsucht... Affleck hat seine Rolle zwar gut gemeistert, leider ist die Rolle aufgrund seiner Probleme eher langweilig, unspektakulär. Der Film hat viele kleine hochs und tiefs, wodurch alles irgendwie vor sich hindümpelt. Ich fand das aber gar nicht schlimm, denn zum Runterkommen und abschalten ist diese Story perfekt

Film wird nicht abgespielt. Habe den Film ausgeliehen, und wollte den auch zur selben Zeit gucken, bekam dann aber die Benachrichtigung: "Die Leihdauer für dieses Video ist abgelaufen". Was ja nicht sein kann😅
