Miracle - Kurt Russell, Eddie Cahill, Michael Mantenuto, Gavin O'Connor

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

If you believe in yourself anything can happen.

This is the true story of coach Herb Brooks (Kurt Russell), who in 1980 had the distinction of having been the last player cut from the USA hockey team the last time the team won the Gold at the Olympics (in 1960). Brooks got his chance at being part of a medal-winning team, however, when he led the USA hockey team to victory over the Soviets (who had won the medal the last four times: 1976, 1972, 1968 and 1964 since that 1960 USA win) at the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid despite overwhelming odds. For a country still entangled in a decades-long Cold War with the USSR, the sports victory was seen as patriotic and symbolic of our side beating their side.
