The Heart of the Game

The female Hoop Dreams.

That’s the quickest way to describe this powerful doc, but it can more than stand on its own merits.

Following the Seattle-based Roosevelt High School girls basketball squad over the course of six years, it has everything filmmakers want.

A scrappy coach with unconventional ways, who shakes everyone up.

A star player chasing athletic success while dealing with real-world issues.

And, of course, a long-gestating bid for state title glory.

Like the other basketball film referenced above, this will endure as a bittersweet ode to the extreme highs and lows to be found in prep sports.
