Are We Marshall?
Just saw We Are Marshall, starring the Matthews, (McConaughey and Fox). I'll let IMDB synopsize(sp?) it for you:
"When a plane crash claims the lives of members of the Marshall University football team and some of its fans, the team's new coach (McConaughey) and his surviving players try to keep the football program alive."
I couldn't do play-by-play for a football game to save my life, so some of the game re-enactments were lost on me, and I think it could could have been thirty minutes shorter, (it was 2 hours long). It was pretty gripping at points though, and that plane crash scene was powerful. The cast is pretty solid. One thing that was sort of weird was that Matthew M. always talks out of the side of his mouth. There are also a lot of crushable actresses- Kimberly Williams, (ok, it's Williams-Paisley now), January Jones, and Kate Mara, (who looked soo familliar- it's because she was in Brokeback Mountain). There's a junket this weekend, although it's unclear whether we're invited or not. That's the problem with being the bottom of the "television food chain." But hopefully they'll let us in, and hopefully Kate Mara wil be there, and hopefully we'll fall in love. Also, I wouldn't mind getting some Lost plot points from Matthew Fox...
