It's called Heart of the Game, and it tells the story of a Seattle high school's girls basketball team, and their struggle from zero to hero. I've been in that "zero" part many times, watching my school's girls basketball team flounder many times. I saw it was playing at the Philly Film Fest, but the times playing weren't good for me, so I missed it.
This screening would have been great. I signed up a bit late, but hopefully it would've been OK. They sent me an e-mail saying to hold tight for more information. Nope, I missed it. That's OK. Janet from Miramax e-mailed me and told me that it was a glitch that that e-mail was sent out that said I was going. If there's anything she could do to make it up, that'd be great.
Time to throw around the "I'm a DJ at a radio station" card.
I told her that I'd love to promote the show on the station, and anything we could give away would be great. I was expecting a few postcards and some movie posters.
She ended up sending me 100 or so postcards, 100 or so movie posters, and a few t-shirts (none, sadly, close to my size). It made me very happy. I gave one t-shirt to Lolo, I'll be giving one to Dana and Suzanne, and the rest are giveaways on my show. I have some decorations for my room now, and I'm excited.
With that said, http://www.apple.com/trailers/miramax/heartofthegame/trailer/ has the trailer for the movie and you can listen to my radio show to here me talk about it tonight from 5 to 7 on WEXP.
