Friday Night Lights
Out in DVD this week is the film Friday Night Lights. This is the story of a high school football team, in Texas, and their journey to a championship. Billy Bob Thornton plays the central character of the coach, Tim McGraw plays one of the parents of a player. There is plenty of drama and passion in this story. It is more about the characters than the sport. The game sequences are graphic, shot almost doucumentery-style. This is a good human drama.
