Javier Fesser’s Champions, Spain’s newest blockbuster hit, follows a hotheaded professional basketball coach sentenced to community service working with a team of intellectually disabled players. In the film, Spain’s leading man Javier Gutierrez plays Marco, the cocky assistant coach for a basketball team in Spain’s First Division. He has problems at work, problems with his wife, problems with almost everything. But the real problem is his approach to life. After a brawl with the head coach and a drunken car accident, he loses his job and his relationship falls apart. His penance is a 90-day sentence to coach Los Amigos, a very special basketball team made up of intellectually disabled men. To Marco’s surprise, he discovers that this “sub normal” team may have what it takes to make it to the national championships. In the end, he’ll be the one who learns what’s really important from his team’s lust for life and the real meaning of being a “champion”. (PG-13)
