There is a good article at Meridian Magazine today on Forever Strong – an indendent, feel good, family sports film based on a true story. It opens today, Friday September 26th, but it probably won’t be in theaters for more than a couple of weeks, so if you’re interested make the effort to see it now!
Forever Strong tells the story of one of America 's most successful athletic teams, a rugby team from Salt Lake City with a win-loss record of 379 and 9 over a 33-year period. It is the story of Rick Penning, who lived life just like he played rugby; fast, hard-hitting and intense. When life on the edge lands him in jail, his case worker Marcus offers him a chance to get back in the game by playing for his rival rugby team. Reluctantly, and with plenty of attitude, he joins Highland Rugby where he must adopt the unique code of conduct that Coach Gelwi enforces, or finish out the full term of his sentence locked away. Egos clash making life on the field difficult for his new teammates, but an unlikely brotherhood forms forcing Rick eventually to choose between conflicting loyalties.
