In the way it combines sports with human nature, it reminded me of another wonderful Indiana sports movie, Breaking Away. It's a movie that is all heart.

The pieces of the drama are put forth like the shapes of the five fingers of a hand, and finally they find a kind of awkward unity that was predictable from the start. And yet, the gesture of it all is utterly captivating, the way a dream would be if it ever really came true. [27 Feb 1987, Daily Datebook, p.74]

This is one of the best re-creations ever of the early-'50s Midwest. [11 Sept 1987, Life, p.3D]
