When the Game Stands Tall

Jim Caviezel’s new film is absolutely destined to become a sports classic . . .

gameWhen the Game Stands Tall
Starring Jim Caviezel, Laura Dern
In theaters Aug. 22
Rated PG

Inspired by a true story, When the Game Stands Tall tells the remarkable journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Caviezel), who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151- game winning streak (1992-2003) that shattered all records for any American sport.

Based on the best-selling book of the same name, the film is a revealing portrait of Ladouceur’s belief in instilling basic life skills where winning is not the goal, but merely the byproduct of playing the game. The private Catholic high school in Concord, Calif., continues to inspire athletes across the country.
