About the Movie:

From the inspiring true story comes the tale of one woman who just wanted to make a difference and wound up making history!

When Coach Cathy Rush (Carla Gugino, MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS) arrives at tiny Immaculata College, the women’s basketball team has no budget, no uniforms and no gym. Refusing to give up, Cathy finds help from a young nun named Sister Sunday (Marley Shelton, NEVER BEEN KISSED). Together, their relentless drive reignites the team's spirit and the Mighty Macs start conquering bigger and better-funded schools.

As financial troubles rock Immaculata, the Macs charge into the championships against all odds. Can the Mighty Macs save their school with one last long shot at victory?

You'll stand up and cheer for the heartwarming, incredible season that made the real Cathy Rush a Basketball Hall of Fame legend!

Cafe Lily's Review:

Even if you're not a big sports fan, this is great family movie!   I always enjoy movies based on a true story and this one is exceptional.   This story is based on the coaching career of Cathy Rush, who turns a small girl's Catholic college upside down with her modern ways, and raises a few eyebrows along the way.   But when she takes the underdog girls basketball team all the way to the national championships, those who previously doubted her begin to take notice.  The team faces so many challenges and yet somehow they manage to stick together and support each other. 

This is a clean, feel good movie that is about courage, teamwork, change and never giving up.   I really enjoyed it.

*More conservative viewers should be aware that there is a brief scene in a bar where the coach and one of the nuns have a beer.
