If you are looking for something fun to do as a family this weekend, look no more! The Mighty Macs opens in theaters this Friday, October 21st. It's definitely a film worth seeing!
I had a chance to preview a special online screening of the film, thanks to Propeller, and although I'm not much into sports, I was drawn in by this movie and the story behind it.
In 1971, a new era is dawning in collegiate sports - major universities are preparing their game plans to win the first National Championship. Immaculata College, a tiny all-women's Catholic college in Philadelphia is looking for a coach to lead them to that title. Cathy Rush is looking for a job in the aftermath of a short-lived playing career of her own.
Though faced with many obstacles, with the help of a spunky assistant named Sister Sunday, Coach Rush creates a whole new game plan for her group of players and leads them farther than they ever dreamed they could go.
It's not often that I run across a movie that I really feel comfortable watching with all of my kids. More often than not, there's adult situations or language to worry about. Not so with The Mighty Macs. It's truly a family film for all ages.
Based on a true story, The Mighty Macs shows what can happen when you dare to dream and dare to believe and is the first theatrical release from Quaker Media.
