“This stellar, incisive documentary centers on the crowd- pleasing competition story that lures in audiences and then lays bare heartsick truths about small-town America. The film is about a basketball team, but what’s most moving is its examination of the lives of the players. The Medora Hornets represent a school with just 70-odd students, and their schedule pits them against consolidated school districts. With the brick plant and the plastic factory long gone, that school is all the prideful town has left. These kids’ desperate urge to win, just once, reflects their circumstances: growing up in a no-job town, given little opportunity, having to find it within themselves to get out there into the world and matter.” Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice.
