In the radio room when Mr. Williams comes in Dwayne switches off the radio on one board. Then a few moments later after Mr. Williams comes back with the class you can see Dwayne using the same board for music. Yet later, after Mr. Williams gets the class to agree to his idea, Dwayne uses the wrong board, the one on his other side, to turn the radio back on. See more »
I saw this movie at Sundance. I am not a basketball fan, nor am I particularly interested in Native American affairs. But I LOVED this movie, and it seemed as if everyone else in the theater did too. It was by far the best film I saw at the festival this year. There are a few flaws you have to overlook - James McDaniels' character is remarkably insensitive to Indian culture, and says some things that no kind intelligent person would, though the character is supposed to be both kind and intelligent. But forget that - McDaniel still makes you believe he's real, and the girls who play the losers-turned-winners on his team are marvelous. For whatever issues of believability you may have, how can you knock a movie that makes people stand up and cheer? And gives us a conclusion that may not be the easy predictable one? The world needs more movies like this. Go see it. You won't be sorry!
