    I must admit I'm a sucker for a good "based on a true story" movie like 'Miracle", "We Are Marshall", "Remember the Titans" ect.

    I also love the "Sandlot".

    How about you guys?

    Swimming Upstream is the story of Tony Fingleton, a young man from a troubled family who found the inner strength to become a swimming champion. Based on Anthony Fingletons novel of the same name and set in 1950s Brisbane, Australia. A young man who beats the odds to become a champion swimmer in spite of his overbearing, alcoholic father (Geoffrey Rush) and long suffering but quietly heroic mother (Judy Davis). Overshadowed in his fathers eyes by his brothers success, it's only when Tony displays an extraordinary swimming talent that he feels he has a shot at a winning his fathers heart and maybe even Olympic gold. The invitation to the Australian Olympic team was traded for a Harvard education. Great Story!

    Rudy, for sure, is the first thing I thought of, and probably my all-time favorite sports movie...although there have been two gay-themed soccer movies I have seen that were excellent, too

    I have to agree on Invictus
    "I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul."
    That one is hard beat. The Blind Side was a great story.
    The you have Chariots of Fire with that amazing music that lifted you up.
    I like movies that pull at my heart, maybe taht why I like sports too.
