Forever Strong

Hotshot rugby player Rick Penning (Sean Faris) was the star player of his Arizona high school team until a fateful brush with the law forces him to ponder the consequences of his actions in a Salt Lake City juvenile detention center. Then, the warden (Sean Astin, Rudy) helps the talented-but-troubled player get a second shot by landing a coveted spot on the famed Highland High School rugby team. Now, with help from Coach Larry Gelwix (Gary Cole), Rick sets out to redeem himself and lead his team to the national championship, but first, he'll have to defeat his old team, which is coached by his father.

Inspired by actual events, Forever Strong is a coming-of-age story that sets one teenager's spiritual and emotional growth against the fierce world of rugby. With nothing left to lose, Rick discovers that the greatest victories aren't born on a field, but in the heart.

Dove Worldview:

This movie is about a troubled youth named Rick who finds God and learns that radical change is possible. The film features some nice themes including some young men who act as good Samaritans and help a woman that is having car trouble.

The film focuses on the Highland Rugby program and features a strong performance by Sean Astin as a concerned counselor. The Highland coach is a good example and teaches Rick and the rest of the team to work hard and to be good people, not just good athletes.

However, despite the nice themes, this one contains violent content hitting a three in our content listing and the drug use, which includes underage drinking and the use of narcotics, also hitting a number three in the content arena. It contains a strong faith message however, and therefore we recommend it for our Faith Based Seal. Share its message with a friend or loved one today!
