The Heart of the Game

Genre: Documentary; Director: Ward Serrill; Author: Ward Serrill; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): In Season; MPAA Rating: In Season; Distributor: Miramax

The Heart of the Game is a rousing doc follows a Seattle high school girls’ basketball team, their tax-professor coach, and talented but troubled star point guard Darnellia Russell through six tumultuous seasons. If only director Ward Serrill had spent more time delving into the players’ off-court lives and less time in the gym.
EXTRAS A routine director’s commentary (where we learn that Serrill’s original intention was to chronicle a single season); a mixed bag of 12 deleted scenes; and a series of post-Game interviews that reveal more of Russell’s personality than the film itself.
