| Do you need a story to give you hope for us all?
Greater is the story of which we all wish we could a part. "Rudy" is often compared, but Brandon's story is much more. While Arkansas has nothing of the following to Notre Dame and the budget of the movie is meager, this movie will have you "all-in" form the beginning. While there are glorious, big scenes of SEC stadiums full of people, we also see the meager, Ozark small town existence of Brandon's upbringing. Neal McDonough and Leslie Easterbrook bring great performances. The "farmer" role and story line are too much contrived. I didn't care for the flashback style of storytelling . . . but then again, if you're watching this film, you understand what the spoiler will be. "GREATER" is story of a person who will inspire us all and a film that shows how the greatest examples don't need the biggest Hollywood budgets to make you laugh, cheer and cry. RIP #77
