Netflix Synopsis: Attending predominantly white Roosevelt High because her mother thinks she’ll have better opportunities under the school’s successful coach, gifted black hoopster Darnellia Russell puts herself — and her coach — through the wringer. Shot in a suburban Seattle high school over a seven-year period, director Ward Serrill’s stirring documentary explores the complicated relationship between gender, race and organized sports.

I have seen lot of movies about basketball. Some are dramas, some are documentaries and even a couple of comedies. By far, my favorite type of basketball movie is the documentary. Sometimes they simply document the team that is the best and always wins. Sometimes, they get close and lose in the end. but The Heart of the Game is a roller coaster. I was sitting at the edge of my seat wondering how it was going to turn out.

This is a movie about heart, caring, dedication and strength. They story covers a team and an extended family where love is clearly held together by the love of the coach for his players and the team for each other. Oh, and it is narrated by Ludacris.
