Solid movie, though not in the same league as Eastwood's last movie, which made my top 10 of the 2000s. Few genres are as cliched as the sports movie, but this is more about the politics of sport for most of the way through (Eastwood also doesn't really get much into the specifics of rugby, which is an interesting choice given that it's not a huge sport in North America). The main attraction here is Morgan Freeman's performance, which is a departure from his typical persona in a lot of ways; his tone of speaking (not to mention accent) are way different from usual.
