An alcoholic ex-basketball star struggles to fit girls' characters and help a basketball team to improve when he is hired to be a coach for the girls' varsity team.
The first trailer and poster for sports-themed movie "The Winning Season" have been made available for sneak peek. They both highlight alcoholic ex-basketball star and divorced deadbeat dad Bill, who is hired by his high school principal friend Terry to be a coach for the girls' varsity basketball team.
Bill begins to regret his decision when he meets the team, which only consists of six members: Abbie, Tamra, Mindy, Wendy, Lisa and Kathy. Using his own way to fit the girls' characters, Bill manages to help the team improving. In return, the girls advise him on his relationship with his daughter. The team's winning season, however, does not protect the girls from their real world difficulties.
Sam Rockwell stars as Bill, with Emma Roberts, Meaghan Witri, Melanie Hinkle, Rooney Mara, Shareeka Epps and Emily Rio playing the members of female basketball team. James C. Strouse directs this drama comedy that will be released in limited U.S. theaters on September 3.
