    (Daniel Lindsa y and T.J. Martin, USA, 113min, 35mm, 2011)
    A stirring, finel y crafted human-interest story about underprivileged lives touched by the r ewards of shared experience. Set in the inner city of Memphis, Undefeated chronicles the Manassas Tigers' 2009 football season, on and off the field , as they strive to win the first playoff game in the high school's 110-ye ar history. Everything changes in the spring of 2004 when Bill Courtney, a former high school football coach turned lumber salesman, volunteers to l end a hand. While Undefeated travels well-tilled inspirational ground, it' s also an irresistible story of football, faith and the lust for happily-e ver-after, black-and-white endings.
