Believer star Ryan Gosling plays Roy Chutney, a Montana kid recruited into gruff and troubled coach Gideon's (David Morse) six-man football team. Not much happens along the way aside from a creepy romance with shrewish Clea DuVall and lots and lots of practice. Everyone's got demons to deal with -- from Gideon's guilt over a kid that played for him and died under mysterious circumstances to the audience's unwillingness to sit through two hours of yet another inspirational football movie.
