~ The Controversial True Story Starring Samuel L. Jackson Is Coming To DVD on 15th August ~
A true-life story starring Samuel L. Jackson, COACH CARTER is an inspirational account of a controversial high school basketball coach, who received both high praise and staunch criticism when he made national news in 1999 for benching his entire undefeated basketball team for poor academic performance.
Set in Richmond, California, this rousing, heartfelt portrayal of human courage and conviction is about overcoming the obstacles of your environment and showing young men a future that stretches beyond gangs, drugs, prison and even basketball.
An engaging portrayal of ambition and the desire to succeed against the odds, COACH CARTER is set against the backdrop of a tense and volatile school community where the anger of disappointment constantly simmers beneath the surface. With an outstanding cast of young actors, including ASHANTI and RICK GONZALEZ, this gritty, inspirational film offers a true perspective on teenage life.
COACH CARTER is available to buy on DVD (RRP £19.99) and Rental VHS Certificate 12.
is available for pre-order via AmazonUK
