The Miracle Season does an excellent job recreating everything that did actually happened. The casting looked pretty close to the actual people. The teams the Trojans faced, where and when they faced them, the scores to each game, the wins and losses. The film even did a great job following exactly how the ball was hit and where it landed. (Although I don’t believe they needed to use CGI for it). However, the film had to change a couple of things, just to make it more Hollywood.

The Conclusion

If you’re looking for a good inspiring film that shows dedication, then you’re going to want to watch The Miracle Season. Based on the outstanding true story of the Iowa City West Trojans senior girls volleyball team. Be warned, it is an emotional rollercoaster. The cast is good, with veteran Helen Hunt running the show and a strong supporting cast. The Miracle Season is not one to miss. Remember to LIVE LIKE LINE.
