"Push: Madison Vs. Madison" (December 4)
This moving sports documentary tracks the players on an inner-city high school hoops team from Massachusetts as they struggle both on and off the court in the midst of a potentially historic season. For the players on this team, basketball is oftentimes an escape from their lives at home -- and a chance at a life much sweeter. At the center of the group is coach Dennis Wilson, a former semi-professional player who now works full-time as a history teacher when not on the court.

"Sound It Out" (December 4) Criticwire Page
Beloved at festivals worldwide, the crowd-pleasing documentary "Sound It Out" profiles the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England, and the colorful characters who keep it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up a mere three miles from the shop, "Sound It Out" makes a great case for why nothing can ever come close to replacing vinyl, and for why shops like these benefit small communities.
