CHAMPIONS (PG13)

2 hours, 3 minutes

Champions is based on the true story of Aderes, a team that has been aiming to win the Valencian Special Olympics for years. The story follows Marcus Markovich (Woody Harrelson), who coaches a minor-league basketball team in the hopes of one day making it to the NBA. However, he loses his temper and causes a commotion on the court as the game is being broadcast, leading to his dismissal.

After being ridiculed by the media and humiliated by his colleagues, he ends up drinking heavily and crashes into a car on his way home. When he is arrested by police, the court sentences him to community service, which consists of coaching a Special Olympics basketball team. Although he reluctantly embraces the new position, it backfires when he realizes that the new team is not something he can change, let alone lead to the championship.

However, after a few encounters with each athlete and the supportive staff, he discovers more in common with each of them and acknowledges their respective talents. As he grows closer to each of them, he transforms into a protective barrier for these disabled people who encounter insults from strangers on a daily basis. Marcus, who used to mutter those insults under his breath in the past, grows as a coach and person after getting to know this new team and guiding them to victory. The original film Campeones was well appreciated by viewers and was the highest-grossing Spanish film of the year in 2018. One week only!

“Woody Harrelson offers a winning, low-key performance with a high feel-good percentage.”
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times
