Nominated for two Academy Awards, this triumphant tale of a high school basketball teams' long-shot attempt to ascend to the State Championship is filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense and breathless excitement! Featuring "fast-break cinematography thatcatches the pace of the game" (Washington Post) and intense, heart-rending performances from Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey and Dennis Hopper, Hoosiers redefined the sports movie with a realism and frankness that make you believe in its small-town characters - and cheer for them over and over again.Hackman is Norman Dale, a basketball coach whose checkered past has led him to a last-chance position with a last-chance team. Made to feel unwelcome by squad members, an icy fellow teacher (Hershey) andtownspeople who nearly have him fired, Dale perseveres with a gritty demeanor and an unwavering passion for the game. But winning over the team is only half the battle in a world where small-town teams can end up playing big-time rivals...and a downtrodden outsider can rouse the pride of an entire county. As "a well-made slice of Americana" (Leonard Maltin), Hoosiers "scores big" (Washington Post)!
