In the early 70s, Cathy Rush becomes the head basketball coach at a tiny, all-girls Catholic college. Though her team has no gym and no uniforms -- and the school itself is in danger of being sold -- Coach Rush looks to steer her girls to their first national championship.
During one game, the scoreboard was inaccurate. After the Arrows scored a goal the scoreboard was seen to change: from 7-4 to 7-5. Then the Arrows were shown making TWO more scores. Then the scoreboard showed another change: from 7-5 to 7-6. This should have been 7-7 or one of the goals was shown too early in the game. See more »
All right, yeah, they're bigger than you, faster than you. And they have better facilities and they have more championships. And, yes, they have a better coach than you. But you know what?

"Crooked Arrows" is one of those movies that even if you know almost nothing about the sport of Lacrosse you get involved in the game so much so that you might just find yourself yelling at the screen and that is part of "The Formula" that works so very well for movies about sports.
If you start watching this movie thinking that "The Formula" is all there is to it, get prepared for a BIG Wake-up call.
This movie has managed to twist Native culture, Traditions, History and even Language all together so expertly that you are not only being entertained but being educated at the same time.
Saying that this movie is an emotional roller coaster would be akin to saying that Tecumseh was a great warrior. Both are major understatements.
I'm not going to give anything away here because I really believe that potential viewers should just watch and ENJOY this movie from start to finish without knowing more than what is in the synopsis.
Probably the biggest compliment I can pay the movie is by saying, "I'm Dave Furlotte and I'm a Crooked Arrow."
