Movies In Focus always enjoys a good inspirational sports drama – and Under The Stadium Lights looks to fit the bill nicely. The film tells the true story of a small town high school football team who beat the odds to win their state championsh.
Milo Gibson and Laurence Fishburne star in the movie which was directed by Todd Randall. Gibson is a young actor with star charisma and he looks great in his role as the team chaplain. Meanwhile, Fishburne always adds gravitas to any movie – and he once again seems to do so here.
I’m looking forward to Under The Stadium Lights when it opens in US cinemas, Digital and On Demand on 4 June 2021.
Milo Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) and Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) star in this inspirational true story of a small town high school football team who beat all the odds to win their state championship. After a crushing defeat ended their prior season, everyone counted the Abilene Eagles out of title contention. Facing doubts and personal challenges both on and off the field, it will take the guidance of their team chaplain (Gibson) and a surrogate father figure (Fishburne) for them to realize what they can achieve when they stand united as a team. In this uplifting underdog story, the Abilene Eagles will once again soar in an incredible comeback that will be forever remembered in sports history.
