That Championship Season (1982)

Film details


Three members of a basketball team, who were successful in their high-school basketball championship twenty-five years earlier, meet for their annual reunion with their old coach. But tensions soon surface beneath the good fellowship owing to the impending mayoral election, for which one of their number is running for re-election. Sternly rallying them together, the coach reminds them that it was teamwork that brought victory twenty-five years ago, and they resolve their conflicts and become a team once again.
