Remember the Titans
A drama of forced high school integration in Alexandria, Virginia in 1971. After leading his team to fifteen winning seasons, white football coach Bill Yoast is demoted and replaced by African-American Herman Boone, tough, opinionated and as different from Yoast as could be. The two men overcome their differences and turn a group of hostile young men into champions. A rousing celebration of how a town torn apart by resentment, friction and mistrust comes together in triumphant harmony.

I'm not a follower of American football, but this movie goes far beyond sports. The relationships between the players, and how they evolve, are amazing to watch. The topic is serious, but since this is Disney, you get all the benefits of a powerful message without feeling drained out at the end.

Very well acted by the young performers. We always expect good work by Denzel Washington and Will Patton but in this case the younger actors were not put to shame. Great casting.

Sentimental twaddle of the worst Hollywood kind -- which is to say, bearing no relation to reality but ratcheted up to give you fuzzy feelings (with retching regularity!). A bunch of black and white football youths are thrown together in a newly-integrated school and, through the urgings of a harsh but fair-minded coach (Denzel W), somehow everyone snaps to attention, behaves decently and befriends their old enemies. Makes for a lot of incidents full of fuzzy feeling and fairness all around. If life were like this, there'd be no problem -- but as we all know race issues linger in the US in a way hardly seen here.Doesn't even have the courage to show a flicker of racist feeling in either the black coach or the whites ones he's displaced. Completely implausible passivity by these white coaches.Sort of To Sir With Love, with a bigger budget, no subtlety at all, and gobs of creepy sentimentality. Check that one out: at least there was a script to that one, a good song, and a bit of logic to the plot.

Excellent Movie. Has a number of themes throughout using high school football as the carrier. In many parts of the US, high school football is a really big deal - at times it seems bigger than our love for hockey!

It's about people learning to accept each other based on their "soul" rather than their "looks".

It's based on a true story - obviously with some disneyfication (cleaning up). I thought it was still quite well done all in all.

Sheryl Yoast: In Virginia, high school football is a way of life, it's bigger than Christmas day. My daddy coached in Alexandria, he worked so hard my momma left him, but I stayed with coach, he needed me on that field.

Suburban Virginia schools have been segregated for generations, in sight of the Washington Monument over the river in the nation's capital. One Black and one White high school are closed and the students sent to T.C. Williams High School under federal mandate to integrate. The year is seen through the eyes of the football team where the man hired to coach the Black school is made head coach over the highly successful white coach. Based on the actual events of 1971, the team becomes the unifying symbol for the community as the boys and the adults learn to depend on and trust each other.
