In 1973, a spiritual awakening captured the heart of nearly every player of the Woodlawn High School Football team.
A gifted high school football player must learn to boldly embrace his talent and his faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field in WOODLAWN, a moving and inspirational new film based on the true story of how love and unity overcame hate and division in early 1970s Birmingham, Ala.
Tony Nathan (newcomer Caleb Castille) lands in a powder keg of anger and violence when he joins fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School after its government-mandated desegregation in 1973. The Woodlawn Colonels football team is a microcosm of the problems at the school and in the city, which erupts in cross burnings and riots, and Coach Tandy Gerelds (Nic Bishop) is at a loss to solve these unprecedented challenges with his disciplinarian ways.
It’s only when Hank (Sean Astin), an outsider who has been radically affected by the message of hope and love he experienced at a Christian revival meeting, convinces Coach Gerelds to let him speak to the team that something truly remarkable begins to happen. More than 40 players, nearly the entire team, black and white, give their lives over to the “better way” Hank tells them is possible through following Jesus, and the change is so profound in them it affects their coach, their school and their community in ways no one could have imagined.

Harry H: I watched a trailer of this movie and watched ads about this movie. Jan 20, 2016
Anita-Janae L: I know this didn't do so well in the theaters, but that's a tragedy. All Christians should have seen it, as the movie and message were amazing. I'm not much of a football fan, but the message in this movie is so much bigger than that. It's a story that really did need to be told. Am so glad it's out in time to give my husband for his birthday. This and War Room were definitely his favorite movies last year. Jan 11, 2016
