Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, July 24th at 5:45pm for “Murderball” at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
This is the true story of a group of tough, competitive, and, yes, quadriplegic rugby players who race down the court in souped-up fortified wheelchairs and slam into each other with bone-jarring intensity. The world-class athletes of Team USA are up against their toughest rival yet in a non-stop thrill ride that will leave you breathless. Filmed from a chairs-eye view, the film also shows the lives of the players off the court, for a story filled with family, revenge, honor, sex, and the triumph of love over loss.
