Believe In Me

BelieveInMeMoviePoster With the recent deluge of such formula movies, now is not the time for yet another feel good sports movie about a small town coach who battles against local public perception to take his team of misfits to the championships. '60s era Oklahoma serves as an anywhere Midwest location where high school boy's basketball coach Clay Driscoll (Jeffrey Donovan) is hired to temporarily coach a girl's team. Clay's hotly contested position becomes more permanent as he discovers how to focus and lead the team. Bruce Dern has ice water for blood as town bigwig Ellis Brawley, intent on publicly humiliating the school's new coach. Writer/director Robert Collector based the movie on Harold Keith's novel "Brief Garland."

Rated PG. 86 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
