    Synopsis


    Woodlawn
    A school and football team combats racism in the 1970's in this religious-based period drama. After racial tensions begin to boil over at a high school, the school's football coach (Nic Bishop) allows a local man preaching a message of positivity, faith and love (Sean Astin) to speak to his players. Their play begins to improve, and the town begins to heal socially and spiritually in response. Jon Voight co-stars as college football coaching legend Paul "Bear" Bryant. ~ Tom Ciampoli, Rovi

      Had a very good story of course it was a true story but how some kids and adults alike handled when the schools first desegregated. How the main character (Tony) was so strong to be the first blacks at that school and was put in a situation to withstand all the hateful things that were said. How his coach who was not a Christian encouraged the football team to get along. How Tony influenced his coaches respect and the coach came to Tony's church and was saved and took that and made his team strong and together black and white made it a great team. Tony went off the play football for Alabama, which was unheard of for a black to go play football at Alabama (yuck. Would have been better if it was LSU) but that wasn't the story. Anyway great book with lessons to be learned by our nation today. Everyone can get along and love everyone because that is always Gods intention and when you do God will honor His promise that good things will come to those who do.

      There is only one true way to fight hate

      This movie is so good. In a world where hatred takes many forms, where simply being a Republican can get you ostracized in college, and where simply being a Democrat can make you your families no. 1 enemy, this movie helps deliver a message that the world needs to hear. Jesus Christ died for you, and if you believe in him and follow him, he can and will help you on this crazy, unfair road called life. Rise above the hatred, bitterness, and selfish ambitions that rule the major part of our lives. There is only one way to combat them and rise above. Woodlawn shows us how.

      Woodlawn bridges the gap between race, religion, academics and athletics. It cuts to the chase about what is important in life and how no one will escape making the decision whether or not to follow Jesus Christ. It is a true story about the moment in life we either have found ourselves in or will find ourselves in very soon. I highly recommend this film to everyone and applaud the people that made the film. Bravo!

      Woodlawn was a transition of bigotry to loving

      We watched Woodlawn and saw the dramatic transition from bigotry of a school and subsequent schools and city. The movie explains how a sports chaplain led an entire team of football players to Christ. Their witness then transformed another team. This was happening nationwide with college students coming to God and then including drug addicts, etc. whose lives were changed for the better.

      My expectations were low seeing as most Christan movies are not on par with Hollywood in terms of quality, but I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a football movie with Christianity sprinkled here and there, same stuff you see in every movie, but this was a Christian movie about football, that did not go over the top to beat you over the head with its message. Must own!

      I lived in Birmingham and attended Phillips High school. In the past, when these 2 met for football, the game was bigger than AU vs AL. The movie reflects many of the problems of the time when integration was made the law.It also shows how one school and students reacted to the changes and tried to improve things through Jesus. Great family movie.

      I saw this at the theatre and I am pre-purchasing this for my family because the movie was an excellent testament of what Christ can do for people on two different sides. It had a lot of football in it which really appealed to my 12 year old son too. I recommend this for families!
