Murderball (2005)

29 Jan

A powerful doco that examines the life of key players in the American Wheelchair Rugby team plus the outcast expat player-turned-coach Joe who now heads the Canada team.

The only sour note would be the hardcore rock Rubin and Shapiro chose to heighten the drama for the game sequences.
