"12 Mighty Orphans" is Worth a Watch

Shelly and I went to the theater and saw "12 Mighty Orphans" today. It's based on a true story about a man with a haunted and heroic past arrives at an orphanage in Texas to both teach, and start and coach a high school football team during the Great Depression. He turns the undersized, football-novice teens into a giant-killers, and the Mighty Orphans pursue their dream of reaching the state finals. Along the way, they become a family, get an education, and overcome their pasts.

In my opinion, it's not as good as the classic basketball movie, "Hoosiers," but is well-worth the watch. I give it a 7.5 out of 10.

As the closing credits roll, the actual orphans are highlighted with brief stories of their lives, so stay seated until the end. Here's the trailer.
