About the Movie
From the writer of HOOSIERS and RUDY, MY ALL AMERICAN tells the true story of Freddie Steinmark. Although deemed too small as an athlete, Freddie (Finn Wittrock) dreams of playing football and brings a fight to the game that is noticed by legendary coach Darrell Royal (Aaron Eckhart), leading to a scholarship to play college football. With dedication and grueling practices, a victorious season is within reach, but Freddie then receives a shocking diagnosis and discovers what it truly means to have the heart of a champion.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For all its basis in real-world events, Pizzo's scenario - adapted from the book "Courage Beyond the Game: The Freddie Steinmark Story" by Jim Dent - plays like thoroughly predictable, by-the-numbers fiction.
Rotten: Strict adherence to the playbook may work in sports, but "My All American" shows the pitfalls of that approach with movies.
Rotten: There's a point where a movie is so predictably manipulative that it starts to stifle the potential of the actors and deny audiences the opportunity to think on their own.
Rotten: Whether it's because of energy expended on dramatic tangents or because the story's difficult outcome demands a subtler touch, the film doesn't hit the emotional crescendo that Pizzo clearly pictures.
Absolutely loved it!!!!!!
Best movie I have ever seen!!!!!!
Wow - what a great movie. Very inspiring. A very powerful and moving story. One you will remember.
The Trio is Complete - Hoosiers, Rudy and My All-American
Angelo Pizzo scripts are like comets. They brilliantly blaze into our view for a moment and then are gone for a long time (usually around ten years). Hoosiers in 1985, Rudy in 1993, The Game of Their Lives in 2005, and finally, in 2015, My All-American. Why is this film getting low ratings? I think in a world of 200 million dollar Marvel movies, many bypass a film with small name actors (Hoosiers did have Gene Hackman, Dennis Hopper and Barbara Hershey) for the most part, and low budget, but lovingly prepared productions. The strength of the script and the amazing, true stories easily carry these films. My All-American will have you crying at the end and so glad you watched. Like the other Pizzo films, this one is a great family film.
