We Are Marshall
We Are Marshall is the true story of the loss of the Marshall University football team in a plane crash in 1970. We feel the heartache of a community that loses 75 beloved athletes, coaches and friends. Matthew McConaughey plays the coach that volunteers to bring the football program back to life. This is a good drama that pays respect to the memory of those lost, and celebrates the spirit of perseverance. I liked the portrayal of emotion that ranged from joy to horror to sadness to anger to determination to joy. It comes full circle. Nicely done, a good sports history film.
