"Five players on the floor functioning as one single unit: team, team, team -- no one more important that the other."On Wednesday night an audience of 18 people attended the library's free screening of the basketball film Hoosiers. Starring Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper, this movie is about a small Indiana high school basketball team that makes it to the Indiana State championship. I am a fan of sports movies and thought that the basketball sequences were authentic and very entertaining to watch.
~ Coach Norman Dale (Gene Hackman)
Comments from one audience member:
"It was a good movie because it does not matter about the size but about... love... patience... courage and team."
~ Tomas M., Carpentersville
