*”When the Game Stands Tall,” the latest film from Director Thomas Carter, is the emotional true story about the De La Salle High School football team (Concord, California), and their incredible 151 game winning streak.
EURweb spent time with Thomas who spoke candidly about his role:
“My focus was telling the story of the characters — of their challenges as individuals and as a team. In the face of adversity, in the face of loss, how did they overcome that?”
The film stars veteran actors Michael Chiklis, Laura Dern and Jim Caviezel, who also spoke with EUR about the film’s overarching themes of purpose; being a team player and setting goals in life.
See below for additional interviews with stars, Alexander Ludwig and Ser’Darius William Blain who shared with us how they prepared emotionally, physically and spiritually for their roles.
