Production Companies (feature film)
It''s every sports fan''s wildest, craziest fantasy--the chance to play on the field and go toe-to-toe with the larger-than-life heroes they idolize. Yet, in 1976, this seemingly fairy-tale scenario happened in real life. It was then that Vince Papale, a 30-year-old teacher and part-time bartender with little football experience other than being a season ticket-holder, entered the unprecedented public tryouts for his NFL favorites, the Philadelphia Eagles, and defied all expectations. Not only did Papale make the team--he remade the team, helping to inspire them to break through their 11-season losing and streak and rediscover their winning spirit. In the bicentennial year of 1976, Papale lived out the dreams of a city and a nation by taking on the impossible with an unsinkable attitude and becoming the NFL''s most unlikely rookie ever.
Tyler Gage has grown up all his life on the rough streets of the city and he knows he''s unlikely to ever make it out of there. But after a brush with the law lands Tyler with a community service gig at the city''s Maryland School of the Arts, everything changes. That''s when he meets Nora, the school''s prima ballerina, an alluring diva who is desperately searching for someone to replace her injured partner before the school''s all-important Senior Showcase. Spying Tyler''s moves, Nora can''t help but notice he''s got a raw but natural gift. She decides to take a chance on Tyler, but as they begin to train, the tension between them, and their polar opposite backgrounds, skyrockets. The only thing standing between Tyler and the void are his dreams of making it off the streets--and the only thing standing in the way of Nora''s obviously brilliant future is the Senior Showcase. Now, with everything on the line, Tyler will have just one performance to prove to Nora, and to himself, that he can step up to a life for larger than he ever imagined.
