The Basket Movie Review

It's Hoosiers: Episode 1, in this oddball period piece about the early days of basketball and its arrival in a small Washington farming village. The eccentric new schoolteacher (Peter Coyote) -- he plays German opera in class! -- also brings a game involving the tossing of a round ball into a peach basket. In order to raise money for farm equipment, the town pools together to send the local boys to play against the state champs. Lots of feelin' good ensues.
