When Newcastle United soccer star Santiago Munez is offered a spot with Real Madrid, he accepts, but the move - accompanied by big money and fame - tests his ties and loyalties to family, friends and business acquaintances.
An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
inspirational, funny and some real life turns blended in.
This movie was better than I expected. It presented a positive view about what persons can do with their life, even if life is not fair. With some comedy, real life situations and disappointments and how determination can overcome almost any challenge, this movie is must see. It shows how different walks of life can get along when a common goal is presented. Also showing that no matter what side of the tracks you're from, inside we are all basically the same.
We strive to be better. A better person, player, friend or just trying to understand how to handle life itself.
This movie will make you sad, happy, laugh and at times even dance for the sake of dancing. Very well made in my opinion. I wish more movies with this type of message were made more often.
