The Korean Cultural Service's series of sports-themed movies concludes tonight with this film based on the true story of Korea’s women’s handball team competing at the 2004 Summer Olympics. In it, a one-time player from the national team becomes the last minute coach of the new team and recruits some of her now-middle-aged former teammates.

Directed by LIM Soon-Rye (sometimes spelled YIM Soonrye), one of the few female directors in Korea, and starring MOON So-ri, it became a major word-of-mouth hit in 2008, and it remains one of the greatest sports movies ever made, from any country.

Like all the films in the various Korean Movie Night series that Korean Cultural Service has offered, admission is FREE! This has got to be one of the best things going for NY's fans of Asian films, and Korean Cultural Service cannot be praised too highly for these presentations.
