I love an underdog story, don't you? As a former basketball player I was thrilled to be given the chance to watch a special preview of a brand new movie hitting the theaters this coming Friday - The Might Macs.
The Might Macs is a great story that your family can enjoy. It showcases women's basketball in the early 1970s. Prior to 1971 women only played half-court basketball as it was thought that full-court play would be too strenuous. The Might Macs shows how far women's basketball has come in the ensuing 40 years.
Cathy Rush is a first-time coach at tiny Immaculata College in Philadelphia. It is a small school for women only run by nuns. They school is struggling and is danger of being closed.
Cathy shows up as a first-time coach to work with the women's basketball team. While she starts out with high numbers, many soon quit and she's left with a rag tag team who doesn't believe in itself let alone their ability to win a game. She not only teaches them how to play basketball but she teaches them to believe in themselves.
Check out the preview:
I loved this movie. I was able to watch it this weekend when I was home alone (a very rare occurrence). I really loved the fact that this is based on a true story. It made it that much better.
The Might Macs opens in theaters this coming Friday, October 21st. I highly recommend going to see it.
