Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Life changes overnight for Coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future. After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy, meet an aspiring athlete who's pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.

Goofs

  • On the 2nd hospital visit between daughter and father (alone), a tight shot shows the father's bedside table with a water glass, tissue box, then TV remote. A few times, the director cuts to a wider, side-shot and the tissue box moves way over to his right, far from the water glass.

There’s just nothing here. Even as comfort food for true believers, Overcomer cannot overcome its myriad shortcomings.

What’s never visible, through the monologues and hackneyed one-on-one chats, is a desire to use lighting beyond flat luminosity. Visual delivery matches the insipidness of the material.
