Suburban Virginia schools have been segregated for generations, in sight of the Washington Monument over the river in the nation’s capital. One Black and one White high school are closed and the students sent to T.C. Williams High School under federal mandate to integrate. The year is seen through the eyes of the football team where the man hired to coach the Black school is made head coach over the highly successful white coach. Based on the actual events of 1971, the team becomes the unifying symbol for the community as the boys and the adults learn to depend on and trust each other.

Film Review

Without a doubt, the movie "Remember the Titans" tries to depict the challenges and difficulties of racial integration after the Civil Rights Act was implemented. In the case of this movie, this film tries to show racism within a particular high school football team. Their attempt was promising but the movie's aim was not to show the racial harmony and problems but rather simply about football. This movie is based on a true story that talks about an African American football coach named Herman Boone (played by Denzel Washington) who is hired by a Virginia High School during 1971 to coach the Titans on his first year in T.C. Williams High School replacing Bill Yoast (played by Will Patton) whom is beloved by the school. Both men are not happy with the situation and circumstances they are put into. But they agree that for the sake of the team, they must cooperate and achieve their goal. A great example would be when Yoast tells Boone to treat his players like marines rath…

Remember the Titans is a sentimental picture about racism and teamwork done in sappy, emotional style. It's very corny at times because it deals with a melodramatic issue. Any Spike Lee film takes on these issues better than this, but the messages are true and everyone puts on a good performance. However it is Washington that pulls the film across in his powerhouse performance as the head coach. I liked the dialogue, especially when Washington is saying the lines. The execution is melodramatic, but if you like films about this type of thing than you should enjoy it a lot. I admit the film is honest and sincere and is often quite funny.

Remember The Titans is truly an inspirational especially because is based of a true story. I use to live in Alexandria, VA and I have always heard the story how things were there before, during, and after segregation. Some the horrible events I used to hear about would blow my mind, but when this movie debuted and I actually got to see stories of people who experienced these trials and tribulations of those struggling to be excepted regardless of their color and the battle of people trying to except those they didn't understand, thought they couldn't relate, or just plain out thought they were better then. Coach Boone and Coach Yoast both had to learn how to co-exist before they could bring the Black Student football players and the White players together, but once these young saw past the color of each other's skin, they would help their city past it too. Even though there was that one member of the team named Ray who was one of the White members of the team who just c…
