Rudy

Rated PG • 113 minutes

Growing up in a large, Catholic working-class family in Joliet, Illinois in the early '60s, young Rudy (Sean Astin) had one goal all his life: to play football for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. But his small stature, lack of athletic ability and poor grades could explain why his father (Ned Beatty), his teachers, his coaches and even his friends all discourage him from getting his hopes up. But against the advice of his father, he makes the bus trip to South Bend in search of his dream. Based on a true story.
