A Must-see Sports Drama
28 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

The film From The Rough is one of the best movies I've seen all year. It is a touching, sports drama based on a true story about Catana Starks,the first black woman ever to coach a college men's golf team. Acting performances from Taraji Henson and Henry Simmons are terrific. So is the screenplay which is very inspirational, and at the appropriate times very funny as we watch the coach try to build Tennessee State University's first golf team. With intense dedication and guts, this coach has to shape up a motley crew of young golfers she recruits from all over the world. She achieves great success, pushing past boundaries. It is the type of uplifting film you want to see over and over again.
