FACING THE GIANTS

Facing the Giants is a drama for the entire family filled with elements of spirituality, sports and family.

Grant Taylor, a high school coach has never had a winning football season. After losing their first three games of the current season, the coach discovers a group of fathers of the players are plotting to have him fired. Combined with money and family problems at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure. An unexpected challenge finds a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field--and off. With God, all things are possible.

The movie starts out slow, with the acting often almost silly, but by the first 30 minutes you're grabbed into the lives of Mr. Taylor and his team. This movie is sure to make you pull back the tears in an uplifting and powerful movie.
