Summary: When a close-knit family is nearly broken by tragedy, hope is restored by their eldest son who carries the weight of victory on his shoulders in THE 5TH QUARTER, coming to Blu-ray and DVD August 30 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
A recent recipient of the Dove Foundation’s “Family-Approved” seal for all audiences over the age of twelve and in the spirit of The Blind Side, comes this inspiring true story of family, faith and football. Aidan Quinn (Legends of the Fall, A Shine of Rainbows) and Andie MacDowell (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Groundhog Day) deliver emotionally stirring performances as the mother and father of Jon Abbate, a rising football star at Wake Forest University. Their lives are suddenly shattered when the family’s youngest son, Luke, is killed in a tragic accident. Inspired by Luke’s memory, Jon courageously leads the Wake Forest team to a series of last-minute victories – leading to a thrilling climax that will “make you stand up and cheer” (NYC Movie Guru).
My thoughts: I was sent a copy of The 5th Quarter to review with my family. Being big movie fans, we watched this one as part of our most recent Friday Family Movie Night. A tradition we are trying to keep alive as long as our twelve year old daughter will allow us to.
I love it when a movie surprises me and turns out to be so much better than expected. This happens to be one of those times. This movie really made our night. Although, I feel the need to warn you, the first half is pretty dramatic. Hang in there, the story, with the help of a wonderful cast, is very uplifting as described above.
