About this item
Includes: "Brian's Song" - Sean Maher (TV's "Party Of Five") and Mekhi Phifer ("Soul Food") star in this excellent remake of the 1971 Emmy Award-winning drama about the friendship between football players Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers. When Gale Sayers joins the Chicago Bears in 1965, the running back is befriended by fellow rookie Brian Piccolo, a brash young man whose personality is the exact opposite of the stoic Sayers. As their friendship begins, the two compete for starting positions on the team, but Sayers' talent far outshines Piccolo's and he quickly rises to the top of the game. When they become roommates, their friendship deepens, and when Sayers injures his knee it is Piccolo who encourages him to get back in shape and back in the game - if only so Piccolo can compete against him on an even playing field. Both men become better ball players because of-and in spite of-each other, and when Piccolo quickly begins his descent into illness, they form a bond that will last forever. "Rudy" - All his life, people have told Rudy he's not good enough, not smart enough, not big enough. But nothing can stop his impossible dream of playing football for Notre Dame. From the time he's a young boy, Rudy (Sean Astin) is determined to join the Fighting Irish. But his blue collar family only laughs at his ambitions - they know "Rudy" will follow his father and brothers to the local steel mill. And, for four long years after high school, he does just that. But some dreams won't die, as "Rudy" proves when he goes to heroic, occasionally hilarious, lengths to win admission to Notre Dame. Once there, he becomes a walk-on player, serving as little more than a human tackling dummy against the starting players. Bloodied but unbeaten, "Rudy" wins the respect of legendary coach Ara Parseghian and the other Irish players, who give him one shot at gridiron glory. An incredible true story from the creators of Hoosiers, "Rudy" is an unforgettable testament to the power of dreams and the triumph of the common man.
