Becky and I went to see “Casanova” on Friday night. The Fandango website at Glory Road describes the movie as follows:
“Coach Don Haskins leads the first black basketball team to NCAA victory during the 1966 season. Based on a true story, the team was the first all-black team to win the title, and Haskin’s passion and dedication helped change the sport’s history during that racially tumultuous time.”
The preview for this movie was good and the movie was even better. This was an all around great film that was definitely worth the price of admission. The acting is very good with an incredible story about overcoming prejudice and adversity regardless of the cost.
Becky thought that a person would have to enjoy basketball at some level to really enjoy the film as much as we did. I think you will like it even if you’re not a basketball or sports fan because it’s such a great story. Jon Voight play’s coach Rupp, the Kentucky basketball legend and gives a great performance, not too mention Josh Lucas as the former girls basketball coach turned college hero, Mr. Don Haskins.
The bottom line is that if you’re looking for a good movie to see with all the junk that is out there right now, you should go see this film.
