Every Loss Is Another Fight: The Road to Redemption a revealing look into the character of Jack Cunningham with Ben Affleck and Director Gavin O'Connor
Ben Affleck's performance as the basketball coach was dark and affecting and definitely a high point of this movie. It was interesting to learn the details of his character's backstory and his motivations as the movie progressed. Good movie.
Moving movie that evolves within the lost of a very sick child. Bens escape mechanism just happen to be alcohol. An also to the extreme. Alcohol can really create extreme mind disconnects. Sometimes help truly is blessing to mend sole. Basketball was kind of escape mechanism.
Bought this, read about it by family something or other that rated it high... but, just beware, it cussed a lot. Other than that, really good movie. Affleck struggles with addiction, struggles with a new coaching job, struggles with marriage...
My wife and I were not able to see this movie in our local movie theater and am happy we were able to purchase it at a good price from BestBuy and am looking forward to watching it as often as we want.
