The original budget for The Hopeful was $150,000 to follow Cody Keith for his senior year in high school. When Cody decided to do an extra year of prep school, director Brendan Kirsch had to personally finance an extra year of shooting for $100,000 and shoot most of the football himself. The move paid off as the additional year of filming saw Cody Keith break six national passing records in Connecticut. See more »
Every parent and aspiring athlete should watch. It is both eye opening and inspiring. In today's world it takes a gifted athlete, a committed support group and a lot of luck to make it in D-1 sports let alone the pro level. Cody clearly has the first two and only time will tell about the third. Far too many parents see a college scholarship as an inexpensive way for their kids to attend college. There are way too many examples of too much pressure put on children to play and practice as a way for parents to relive their unsuccessful childhood athletic dreams. The Keith's commitment to Cody works because of both his athletic prowess and their commitment to give him the best opportunities possible. I will be pulling hard for Cody to realize his dreams!
