The Express is the story of Heisman Trophy winner Ernie Davis. A gifted football player who's life and career were far too short. Not only does the film do a good job capturing the talent and drive of the athlete, but reminds us of that ugly side of racist America that is so shameful. The drama unfolds both on the field, and off as a young man works with his team and coaches, to succeed with dignity. A strong sports history film, I liked this one.
