27 February 1999 | ag-2
| good script, GREAT cast
Passing Glory is based on a historical event, and it's certainly a gripping tale. (The story, in case IMDB hasn't got the plot up yet, is based on a real-life basketball game played between two Catholic high schools -- one white, one black -- in the segregated South of the 1960s.) However, the real reason to catch this made-for-TV film is the amazing casting. Any movie that brings you Rip Torn, Andre Braugher, and Ruby Dee on the very same screen is worth your time. Watch this one!
