Summer Film Series: "Remember the Titans"
Are you ready for some football? We finish out our summer film series and rev up our team spirit by watching Disney's "Remember the Titans." This dramatic tale about the racial integration of high schools in 1971's Alexandria, Virginia, depicts how desegregation played out on the football field. The entire town is divided as Coach Boone (Denzel Washington) beats out the Coach Yoast (Will Patton) for the top coaching role, and the players jockey to earn their chosen positions on the team. As the players struggle through their differences to come together for a victorious season, the whole town follows suit. "Remember the Titans" is 113 minutes long and is rated PG.
