Review

While I agree that Glory Road is exciting and inspiring, the fact remains that the movie takes liberties with the real facts.First of all was Jon Voights role as Adolph Rupp.Im a native Kentuckian and listened to and later saw interviews with the noted Kentucky coach . While the Wildcats did play for many years with a segregated team, There were African American players recruited in later years. Kentucky was one of the first SEC teams to break the color barrier. That said ,on to the film The film moves quickly . Great photography and sets are standouts. The final minutes of the NCAA Championship are breath taking. Good cast brings the story to a satisfactory conclusion. Rating of eight stars out of ten.

Great Message Based on a True Story

In 1965, the coach of the high school girl basketball team Don Haskins (Josh Lucas) is invited by the Texas Western Miners to be their coach. Despite the lack of budget, Haskins sees the chance to dispute the NCAA and moves with his wife and children to the college dormitory. He recruits seven talented and rejected black players to play with five Caucasian players and formed a legendary team that wined the 1966 national championship against the powerful Kentucky.

"Glory Road" is an engaging film with a great message based on a true story. In a period when the racism was explicit in the USA, Don Haskins challenged many people with his team of black players implementing discipline and training and winning the NCAA against all the odds. The film shows the difficulties and prejudice the players were submitted and how they superseded all the relationship problems proving that they were equal to (or even better than) the white players. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Estrada para a Glória" ("Road to the Glory")

Great movie with a great message

I really liked this movie for one simple reason: No matter what's the color of your skin, we are all equal. No one should be underestimated.

This movie shows that old, and sadly sometimes not so old, mentality and belief that white people are superior. It shows how white people didn't believe a team based on black players could beat a white team. They believed they didn't have both the quality and the intelligence to play basketball.

I would strongly recommend this movie since it shows how society was back in the 60s and how it has changed throughout the years. If you are looking for a sports movie with some message, this is definitely a good choice.
