Facing the Giants (Destination Films 2006)
Even if you are not a big football fan (as I am), this film will be entertaining to all! When you consider that the budget of this film was $100,000 and that most of the actors in the movie had never acted a day in their life...hey...they made a pretty good flick! Bucking the Hollywood system. How could Facing the Giants not be on ECM?
Here is the synopsis from IMDb...
From the award winning producers of FLYWHEEL, comes an action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear. Facing the Giants is a powerful experience for the whole family inspiring viewers to live with faith, hope, and love!
Here is the trailer for the film!
After I'd get through barfing, I'd have a long talk with coach.
