A gifted high school football player must learn to boldly embrace his talent and his faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field in WOODLAWN, a moving and inspirational new film based on the true story of how love and unity overcame hate and division in early 1970s Birmingham, Ala. Tony Nathan (newcomer Caleb Castille) lands in a powder keg of anger and violence when he joins fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School after it's government-mandated desegregation in 1973. The Woodlawn Colonels football team is a microcosm of the problems at the school and in the city, which erupts in cross burnings and riots, and Coach Tandy Gerelds (Nic Bishop) is at a loss to solve these unprecedented challenges with his disciplinarian ways. It's only when Hank (Sean Astin), an outsider who has been radically affected by the message of hope and love he experienced at a Christian revival meeting, convinces Coach Gerelds to let him speak to the team that something truly remarkable begins to happen. More than 40 players, nearly the entire team, black and white, give their lives over to the quot;better wayquot; Hank tells them is possible through following Jesus, and the change is so profound in them it affects their coach, their school and their community in ways no one could have imagined. Starring: Sean Astin, C. Thomas Howell and Jon Voight.

Powerfully inspirational

Woodlawn is truly epic with a transformational message. It's an opportunity to engage the next generation in a whole new way. That opportunity will only take root if we advantage of it. You won't be burned by this film. You'll likely be set on fire.

Powerful Message

The best movie I have seen in several years. Great message of the power of the gospel to transform not only individuals but culture. Great acting and football sequences. Good message of racial reconciliation.

Fantastic!

This is a fabulous movie that has helped to teach my children not only about history where they live but has also deeper each of our Faith's by showing us more about living out what God intended for our world.
