About the Movie
Jeremy Lin’s story is almost too Hollywood to be true. Mired with adversity throughout his amateur basketball career, he was confronted with numerous obstacles as he aimed to achieve his dream of becoming a professional NBA basketball player. Lin was always a strong player but his skill was often over-looked. Although he led his California high school team to a state championship, he never received a scholarship offer from a major university. Then, despite having a stellar collegiate career, he wasn’t drafted by the NBA. Finally, bucking the odds and down to his last chance, Lin reluctantly accepted a try-out with the floundering New York Knicks and finally got his big break during the 2012 NBA season.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Lin raised his game's possibilities; you just wish that Mr. Leong had raised his.
Fresh: [Its] strong but wholly appropriate Christian overtones may alienate some fans, but this is rousing fare ...
Fresh: A plethora of Lin family home-video clips, riveting archival and Leong-shot footage ... help tell the icon's remarkable story.
Fresh: You may have watched Lin's rise to national prominence the first time, but it's still easy to get caught up in the moment.
