Newton Movie Review: Remember the Titans


NewtonThis family-favorite movie about love and football is a definite must-watch for every generation. A Walt Disney film, this movie was released in September of 2000 to praise from critics. A partially Newton filmed movie, it’s a great watch all-around!

Denzel Washington and Will Patton star in this heart-warming movie that confronts issues like racism and hard-headedness head on. The setting is 1971 in the suburbs of Virginia. Coach Herman Boone (Washington) is begrudgingly appointed the new T.C. Williams High School football coach over Bill Yoast (Patton), and an integrated team is born.

The team goes to camp and Boone forces them to bond. Bunking them with people of a difference race, the players at first are prejudice toward one another and are not getting along.

Luckily, with the help of Boone’s training and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, the team comes together and plays in harmony. Unfortunately, back at home people aren’t so comfortable with the mixed-race team.

I would say this is a movie for all ages. It has excitement for the younger crowd and teenagers, but brings up complex issues for the older folks. This would be a movie night for those with kids in their teens. Overall, it’s a great partially Newton filmed movie with character. Stop by your local store and watch it tonight!
