This feel-good little documentary has a limited run in big cities, so try to catch it now while you
can. It puts to rest a lot of stereotyping of Arab-Americans and Muslim-Americans as being somehow anti-American, while being a great sports movie about the underdog trying to win the big game.
The Fordson Team is going to play their arch-rivals, Deerborn High. How they train to do this during the month of Ramadan, when they cannot eat or drink water from sunup to sundown shows the dedication of these young men to their faith, as well as showing them as typical American teenagers.
This isn't a "preachy" film, so this isn't like a Michael Moore style doc.. It's closer to Rocky, or like to the great sports flicks. The kids are so refreshing, their families so warm and open that you just fall in love with them.
Parental Alerts: No sexual material, No violence except for sports tackling etc, lots of family togetherness, some mild language
Star Trek Into Darkness: An IMAX...
Fordson: Faith, Fasting, Football
