While most men don’t enjoy chick-flicks, and most women don’t enjoy brutal war movies, there has to be a middle ground, a place for compromise, right? Dramas are great, especially sports dramas, because they can be very inspirational — and you’ll love them because of all the sweaty, hot athletes, and your man will like them for all the action! And you’ll both love them for the lessons, and the inspiration. Here’s my list of the 8 best inspirational sports movies… you and your sweetie will enjoy them!
1. Invictus (2009)
Morgan Freeman gives most of the inspiration as Nelson Mandela, but Matt Damon is also brilliant. I wish this movie had been more about rugby, and less about politics, but it was still fantastic, and it’s of course based on a true story, which is always so interesting! For even more inspiration, read the poem, “Invictus,” by William Ernest Henley. Amazing!
