Episode 109. Silver Screen Sports: No I in Team

To kick off a new mini-series of podcast episodes this season, Alex and Jonathan look at how various team sports are portrayed in the films Field of Dreams (1989), Remember the Titans (2000), and Invictus (2009). We discuss the ways sports are used in film to bring people together on various levels, the effectiveness of adding fantasy to sports movies, and what is needed to elevate a film out of the pit of cliches.
