Based on the inspiring true story of West High School girls' volleyball team. After the tragic death of the school's star player Caroline "Line" Found, the remaining team players must band together under the guidance of their tough-love coach in hope of winning the state championship.
Drama - This is a fact-based sports movie centering around a girls' high
school volleyball team, and the female angle with both the players
and coach distinguishes it from the norm. Fans of Helen Hunt and
William Hurt will enjoy. There is very little language and nothing
else that may be considered objectionable though the tragedy that
sets the film into motion may be a little dark for the youngest of
kids. Otherwise, most families will find this suitable all-ages

Roger EbertFull Review Above Average ...this movie goes for the heartstrings and tear ducts more than the sports-conscious. The results are pretty mixed. Given the care that the adult and teen actors invested in trying to honor their real-life counterparts, this feels lazy.
NewsdayFull Review Average This dramatization of a true story is long on sentiment, short on character and drama. ...comes with built-in emotional impact and a feel-good sports narrative. That doesn't automatically make it a movie. ...tries hard to manipulate our emotions, but it might have fared better if it trusted us to make up our own minds.

OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! Most everyone loved "The Miracle Season." A small percentage of adult males and to a lessor degree females, felt it was just an "average" movie.
