Slovenski opis filma:

Športna drama po resnični zgodbi. Arktika, 1998. Mladi, ambiciozni učitelj Russ se iz Kanade preseli v Kugluktuk, mestece na severu Arktike z največjim porastom samomorov v severni Ameriki. V mestu začne delati kot učitelj na srednji šoli, a se mu niti ne sanja o tamkajšnji kulturi in tradiciji, in še manj o nezavidljivem gospodarskem položaju, ki pesti okrožje. Preseneti ga, ko prvič stopi pred napol prazen razred in ugotovi, da ima opravka z depresivnimi, vseh iluzij oropanimi mladostniki malega inuitskega naroda, ki ga že stoletja prisilno kolonizirajo in dušijo njegovo samobitnost. Russ se odloči, da jim bo pomagal premagati otopelost, da jih bo navdušil za življenje in jih odvrnil od drog in alkohola. Dijakom predstavi igro z žogo, imenovano »lacross« in jih povabi na treninge … Fantje in tudi dekleta so sprva nezaupljivi, celo sovražni ob njegovi pobudi, v bistvu pa si želijo sprememb in motivacije za boljše življenje. Russ jih s predanostjo sčasoma pridobi in kmalu ustanovijo športno ekipo Grizliji. Mladina na koncu prevzame odgovornost za klub in začnejo se porajati načrti, iz katerih se kaže, da lahko osvojijo še kaj več kot samo turnir … / CANADA / 2018 Režija: Miranda de Pencier / Scenarij: Moira Walley-Beckett, Graham Yost / Igrajo: Ben Schnetzer, Emerald MacDonald, Booboo Stewart, Paul Nutarariaq, Ricky Lee Marty-Pahtaykan, Tantoo Cardinal, Anna Lambe, Will Sasso …

Originalni opis filma:

THE GRIZZLIES is an inspiring true story based on a group of Inuit students in the small Arctic town of Kugluktuk. Suffering from widespread drug use, alcohol abuse, domestic violence and one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world, this northern community is periled by the legacy of colonialism. The students are naturally skeptical when Russ Sheppard, yet another ignorant and unprepared white rookie teacher, arrives from the South on a one-year teaching contract. With much to learn, but deeply shaken by the death of one of his students, Russ introduces his class to the sport of lacrosse in an effort to help lift the dangerous fog of trauma existing in his students. While initially resistant, the students gradually come together to embrace the sport, form Team Grizzlies, and find inspiration to make shifts in their own lives. Together with Russ, the team gains the support of a deeply divided town and eventually negotiates its way to the National Lacrosse Championships in Toronto. Despite their ultimate defeat, The Grizzlies discover that success doesn't lie in the outcome of a lacrosse game; but instead, in the spirit of community.
