The Mighty Macs

JOY REVIEW

The Mighty Macs is a story of the basketball team in the 70s that reached the nationals, and was coached by a woman whose name was Carol Rush. This is the story of how she did it. She is played by Carla Gugino, and it’s really terrific. It’s kind of a Rocky for women, but the performances are terrific, you really care about the kids. Ellen Burstyn plays the mother superior, and it’s just a really fun movie.  Make sure you stay for the credits because it will tell you where all these women have gone. I plan to send several women that I know to go see it just because, for example, the coach at Penn State women’s came out of there. It’s a story of empowerment and women at a crossroads of feminism and how they dealt with it. I thought it was a terrific movie, four and a half stars.
