The fanfare over football may be fizzling, but a 1925 star player named Dodge Connolly (George Clooney) isn't about to let the flame go out. To rekindle interest in the sport he recruits Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski), a WWI hero. But when a curious and beautiful journalist (Renee Zellweger) starts asking searing questions about Rutherford's past, Connolly is forced to run interference -and then the real game begins.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How are events inflated in this film? Who is responsible to establish the truth? What happens when a story grows bigger with each telling?

Does a society need heroes? Why? Are celebrities and heroes the same thing?

How do advertisers use famous faces to promote their products? How is that evident in today’s product promotions?
