On June 5, 2012, MGM Home Entertainment released Hoosiers on Blu-ray. David Anspaugh directed the film starring Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey, and Dennis Hopper.
Hoosiers is based on the true story of the small-town Milan Indians’ state title run in 1954. It’s your classic American tale of redemption. Norman Dale finds himself an unwelcome new coach who leads a group of undisciplined athletes on an improbable run to the Indiana high school championship game. Along the way, Dale must overcome a teacher determined to keep the team’s best player off of it. Additionally, Dale also has to deal with a town full of fathers who second guess each decision and action he makes; including drawing the townsfolk’s ire after hiring of former Husker basketball legend (and current town drunk). Can Dale overcome the odds to win the big game?
