5.0 out of 5 starsNot just a basketball movie.
Verified purchase
This movie is so much more than the regular basketball movie with the team, this is a movie about the injustices in our world even if it is so close to home. Tremendous amount of family and love with this community, with a coach who devoted his life to these kids...moving film that I 10/10 recommend to anyone!! (you don't even need to be a sports fan to love it...like me)

5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic documentary with lots of heart!

This is a moving documentary not just for fans of basketball. It spotlights the racial and economic divide between the rich mostly white summer residents and the lives of the mostly black kids and coach who live year-round in the not so glamorous part of the Hamptons. Killer Bees was fascinating, emotional and, in some parts, heart-breaking as we follow the stories on and off the basketball court. While we watch a brash wealthy real estate agent go from one multi-million dollar house to the next bragging about his McMansion sales, it is juxtaposed by a story of a poor student who expresses his desire to go to college while at the same time quietly mentioning his family is being evicted from their home. This documentary is riveting and powerful and will have you rooting hard for the Killer Bees to succeed -- not only on the court but off the court as well.

5.0 out of 5 starsRiveting Documentary! You can't stop rooting for them.
Verified purchase
One of the best basketball documentaries in long time. Well made. Balanced from every standpoint. A documentary that goes beyond basketball. Sure to raise a few eyes browses in the social context. Refreshing to see how the underprivileged can triumph where it's easy to fall to despair and give up. A must-watch documentaries if you like basketball, small community-living and some history of the Hamptons. Excellent Job!

It was a nicely done story of our small community, Bridgehampton, where basketball has always been a big thing. A refreshing cast of characters in real life. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 starsUnexpectedly emotional
Verified purchase
Wow! I have not expected this documentary to bring out so many emotions in me. I am not a sports fan and did not grow up in the area, but I could relate to many issues this film touches upon. I felt sadness, anger, compassion, pride, hate and love... This film made me smile and cry. It will have me think about life and purpose for a while. If you have ever been passionate about anything in your life, you will love this documentary. It breaks your heart to see these boys cry at the end. I hope they will all succeed in their lives.

Very good documentary about a high school team that’s trying to repeat as state champions and at the same time going through the racial profiling that divides cities. Very powerful
