I'm very surprised that this film hasn't received more local publicity, but maybe that's because it's based on the Cleveland Browns, and they thought we'd all go see it anyway. This is the story about building the Cleveland Browns into winning football team, kind of a Money Ball sort of film. Yes, it's a fantasy story he said, emitting an audible sigh. At least they really did film a lot of it in Cleveland instead of somewhere else and pretending it's our city. Thanks for that, I guess.
On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver ( Kevin Costner) has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he's willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.

If anyone wants to meet beforehand for a quick bite to eat or an adult beverage, let's meet at the Toast Wine Bar (1365 W 65th St, across from the theater). Let's plan to meet at 6:00. I'll get there a few minutes early to watch for everyone. Or if you're going to meet us at the theater, let me know so I can watch for you there.
