That being said, this is a great movie. "Great" as in one of my all-time favorites. Over the last few years, whenever we have friends or family visiting and staying with us, when we decide to sit down and watch a movie, it's always Touchback. They've never heard of it, and when it's over, I always hear the same thing: "Wow. Why haven't I heard of this movie!" And then the next time we visit, I inevitably see the Blu-ray sitting on their shelf.
That means I watch the movie at least a few times each year, and I love it every time. There are a few specific scenes and lines that just hit me like a load of bricks.
So if you haven't seen it, and you've made it this far to the Amazon page, add it to your cart and watch it this weekend.
Touchback is easily one of the best films of 2012. It played in very few theatres and clearly had little marketing behind it. It always amazes me when I come across a gem of a film like "Touchback" that I had never heard of until recently when there are countless crappy movies being released every weekend it seems with millions of marketing dollars being poured into them. Right now you can catch this on-demand if you have Starz in your cable line up if you want to give it a quick watch before buying it. This movie has what so many films are lacking IMHO. It has solid writing with excellent character development. Anyone who has lived awhile will find a character in this film they can identify with. The PQ is excellent as is the AQ. I have watched the film 3 times now including a listen through of the commentary track that I thoroughly enjoyed. The film holds up extremely well on repeat viewings. Being that this film was partially shot not too far from where I grew up made it that much more special to me. I think this film will find a very large audience in the coming years. I don't care for most sports films made anymore. This one was definitely an exception. The life lessons portrayed in this story are invaluable. I look forward to sharing "Touchback" with more of my friends and family. It receives my highest recommendation!
