Friday Night Lights

Description

Friday Night Lights poster 1In Odessa, Texas, 1988, the financial bust is evident in its boarded-up shops and broken lives. Yet one hope sustains the community: Once a week during football season, the town and its dreams come alive beneath the dazzling and disorienting Friday night lights, when the Permian High Panthers take to the field. With each game, the Panthers hope to get closer to mainstream success and their dedicated coach Gary Gaines (Billy Bob Thornton) tries to keep the team focused and together in the face of the increasingly tense expectations of the town. But when they lose their star player, can he stop the team falling apart? (Peter Berg, 2004, PG-13, 117 min.)
