Transcript 12 MONTROSE VOICE/FEBRUARY 27. 1987 'Hoosiers' Scores Winning Points Review by Bill O'Rourke Montrose Voice a Hoosiers Hoosiers tells a tale about the 1951-52 high school basketball season. The time period is significant. This is not one of your modern sports movies—all glitz and predictability. drums and feet. Jerry Goldsmith's music captures the old fighting, cheering spirit in a very with-it way. (This ought to be a dynamite album.) Those seven boys are not just visions of young male virility. They are seven people we've come to care very much about individually, and they're something more—a team. How many of our films today extol the virtues ofthe lone (left to right) Steve Hollar, Kent Poole, Gene Hackman, Scott Summers, Brad Boyle and Wade Schenck from "Hoosiers" There's a very real possibility that this basketball team might loose the state championships. Their coach would still be very proud of them. So would we. We wouldn't feel cheated at all. This movie doesn't maneuver the plot so that everything hinges on that last game. No one's going to forfeit his livli- hood if they lose. A very good life will still continue for these boys. What matters in this movie, to this coach, is the development ofthe young wolf? Here, at last, is a group of fiercely proud American eccentrics working together towards a goal. There are so many stories here! The coach, played by Gene Hackman, is a man with a past. He's been banned from coaching in New York. This is his last chance. Kent Poole plays a team member whose alcoholic father (Dennis Hopper) embarrasses him. Can he learn to give him another chance? How many times? Steve Hollar is the lippy boy. Scott Hardy ICraig Sheffer) has followed Amanda (Lea Thompson into the girl's locker room in order to talk with her. When a stunned gym teacher rushes up to get him out, he becomes verbally abusive in "Some Kind of Wonderful" men's characters. Would we really believe that if the film were set in the present day? Even in the high school situation? I'm not sure. If not, our world is poorer because of it. And our movies, a mirror of that world, are too. This movie, hearkening back as it does to the days when the president was still an actor, can dance rings around most of the new sports films. There is plenty of footage with the actual game lovingly photographed in both regular and slow motion against a score filled with the sound of pounding Summers is an early Jesus freak. Wade Schenck has to prove to himself that he's more than just an equipment manager in a team uniform. Can Barbara Hershey let go of all her bitterness and love the coach? The old pros revel in their parts. The young ones prove themselves more than equal to the task. This is such a challenging yet comfortable film. Even surrounded by the glorious beauty ofthe Indiana countryside, this film is going to move a little slowly for the impatient. Screenwriter Angelo Pizzo and director David Anspaugh are faithful to a quieter town and a less hectic time. But those of you who have the kind of character to stick it out are going to be richly rewarded. d Notes Scriptwriters/ Houston read and cri tique new plays and screenplays at University of St. Thomas' Jones Theater on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
