Samuel L. Jackson is pretty much the only “name” star in this real life story about a high school basketball coach and his team in Northern California. Great messages throughout – a real tribute to conviction and determination. The young actors playing the students are all very good. Debbie Morgan (I remember her from All My Children!) plays Jackson’s love interest. Shows how one person can make a real difference – I love movies like that!
Coach Carter- -
Based on a true story, in which Richmond High School head basketball coach Ken Carter made headlines in 1999 for benching his undefeated team due to poor academic results.
