    Great inspiring movie.. We Are Marshall

    This film is based on a true and tragic story. On November 14th, 1970, the Marshall University football team, football coaches, athletic staff, key alumni, and friends were flying home to Huntington, West Virginia after an away game against East Carolina.

    Their plane crashed killing all seventy five (75) aboard.

    How do a University and a small town of 50,000 people respond to a massive tragedy that affected so many students and town residents? This movie is about their struggle to come to grips with that tragedy.

    This is not just a sports movie!

    Do not miss this movie.

    You may have seen other movies about teams rising from the ashes.

    You may have seen other movies about loss and grief.

    But you will never see a movie with such real feelings portrayed on the screen that you are compelled to go to West Virginia to pay your respects...and while you're there...catch a game.

    The portrayals are exquisite.

    You feel the angst and the pain.

    The struggle was believable as was their victory!

    Although a very different focus, I believe that if you loved "Remember the Titans" with Denzel Washington, you will love this movie even more.

    No one left the theatre until all of the credits had been seen and there was full audience applause several times.

    There just aren't that many movies like this one out there!

    Oh and by the way, loving sports is not required.

    Everyone will love this movie.
