No doubt some of you have heard about that documentary Undefeated, the kiss-ass Sarah Plain documentary made by a right wing conservative filmmaker intending to trick people into thinking that that MILF (Why do you think the media makes so much fuss about her? Because of her intelligence, or that screechy nails-on-a-blackboard voice of hers?) was a force to be reckoned with.
Of course it didn’t work. The Palin doc tanked miserably at the box office, grossing barely $100,000. However one can be sure the same fate will not befall the other Undefeated documentary.
I’m referring to Undefeated, the documentary co directed by Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin, which follows a volunteer coach for the Memphis Manassas, an inner-city school high-school football team, as he tries to help the team win its first playoff game in 110 years and inspire the students in the process.
After its showing at this year’s SXSW, the film was picked up for distribtuion by The Weinstein Company, and currently the company has been holding media screenings. The word is that the film is phenomenal, reducing even grown men to tears.
No date has been set yet for the film’s release, and there’s not even a trailer out; but when it is we’ll put it up.
