Synopsis:  In 1973, a spiritual awakening prompted by an itinerant lay preacher (Astin) captures the hearts of the Woodlawn High School football team. Led by their coach, Tandy Geralds (Bishop), and fueled by the team’s dedication to love and unity in a school and community filled with racism and hate, the team stands together as brothers, and makes an astounding run at the playoffs, leading to the largest high school football game ever played in the torn city of Birmingham, Alabama, and the rise of its first African American superstar – Tony Nathan (Castille). Voight plays legendary University of Alabama coach Paul “Bear” Bryant.

WOODLAWN opens in theaters everywhere Oct. 16.
