Roy gets cut from his high school football team just days after his estranged father dies. For him, football is more than a proving ground; it is a promised escape from his lonely rural existence and salvation from the paralyzing passivity that dominates his life. Enter Gideon, a loner living on the roughneck fringe who is looking for gamers--kids who scrap hard--to play on his six-man football squad. Roy joins the Renegades, and he and Gideon enter into tenuous friendship that pushes the limits of male bonding. Written by

I thought this was a great movie. The script and the cast are very strong. I personally think a sign of a good movie is that it takes me somewhere I've never been, shows me characters I've never seen before, in situations I don't ever expect to be in, and lets me totally understand what they are experiencing. Regarding the comment from RitchCS in Ft. Lauderdale that the film is only showing on the Sundance Channel, it is playing this week in Chicago at Facets Multimedia so it may in other "art house" theaters around the country. Catch it if you can!
