Product Description

In the spirit of The Blind Side comes this true story of family, inspiration, football and the gift of life. Aidan Quinn and Andie MacDowell deliver emotionally stirring performances as the father and mother of Jon Abbate, a rising football star at Wake Forest University. Their lives are suddenly shattered when the family's youngest son, Luke, is killed in a tragic car accident. Inspired by Luke's memory, Jon courageously leads the underdog Wake Forest Demon Deacons to the ACC Championship.

Edited theatrical version.

"A beautiful story of faith and inspiration"
Kathie Lee Gifford, Today

"If you were inspired by The Blind Side, you'll want to see The Fifth Quarter."

A fantastic story of loss & triumph . Just a reminder that God doesn't keep us from troubles, but he is there to guide and keep us. This DVD is well made, it is definitely worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Watch Oct. 1 2011
By Shar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must admit, the movie wasn't anything like I was expecting. It was more and so meaningful to watch how families deal with such a tragic loss in their lives. I have often made the comment that when tradegy hits one family and their lives, I do not how people who do not have Christ in their lives can deal with all that goes on. Your life will truly be blessed by watching this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Fan Aug. 11 2011
By Samantha Marie Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a Wake Forest fan for years and remember when this tragic yet inspiring story happened. The movie captures everything so well that you can't help but feel for the Abbate family. It's such a touching story of how someone so young can affect so many people and the obstacles that the family had to overcome. I remember when the crowd would put up 5 fingers at the start of every 4th quarter and how it felt to be a united community around the family. And how the football team came together and were able to overcome the preseason disappointment of being picked to finish last in the conference. This movie is very inspiring and I highly recommend it to anyone. GO DEACS!!

I am going to see this movie again. I cried a lot through this movie but it was so inspiring. This movie to me is what you should get out of a movie. It has meaning, family relationship,strength, and love.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - (...) - @tss5078 Nov. 24 2013
By Todd Smith - Published on Amazon.com
February 13, 2006, was a normal winter's day in a small suburb of Atlanta. Luke Abbate, a 15 year old High School Lacrosse star, accepts a ride home from a teammate. On the way the new driver decides to show off his driving skills by flying down the street at 90 MPH, when he loses control of the car. The car flies about 70 feet, injuring all the passengers and killing young Luke. It's a nightmare story that all families fear, when their kids start driving, the only difference about Luke's story is that it really happened. The 5th Quarter is a film dedicated to Luke's memory and tells the story of his family in the wake of such tragedy. As the film plays out, it starts to lean away from tragedy and toward triumph, the triumph of the 2006 Wake Forrest Championship Football team. There captain was John Abbate, Luke's brother. The team was supposed to finish dead last, but wound up having a miracle season. It is a story that was so well done, that it couldn't have been anything but a true story. I don't think any writer could have thought of a story like this. Ryan Merriman stars, once again in a sports drama, and of all his performances that I've seen, this had to be the strongest. Not only does he show tremendous athletic ability, but he takes the audience of a roller-coaster ride of emotion. Merriman was so good, that he even had a cold hearted cynic like myself, tearing up. Aidan Quinn and Andie McDowell play the matriarchs of the Abbate family, giving outstanding performances. They made the audience see and feel just what it was like for the Abbate family. Most films are meant to entertain, but the 5th Quarter does more than entertain, it tells a very important story and actually makes you feel something for the tragedies and hardships of other people. I was expecting to see a sports movies, instead I saw something that really made me think. Only the best the big screen has to offer can make you both think and feel for the characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly executed, poorly acted acted and doesn't do justice to the true story behind it. June 23 2013
By Joseph Langy - Published on Amazon.com
This could have been such a good movie but everything was just plain awful.
It tries again and again to hit you in the face with heart-felt after after heatfelt scene that (and no disrespect to the family that this film is based on) it just starts to bore you. The director seems to be able to take something that would normally make you emotional and turn it into something silly and I couldn't help but laugh at it. Characters are introduced and dropped as quickly as they appeared.
When I said earlier that the acting was poor, I meant more of the fact that it just simply isn't how people would normally act in these circumstances. Yes, they would be crying, and yes, they would be angry but what these actors are doing doesn't ring true and I can't explain why. Maybe it's because you can feel the director forcing these actors to say and do things more so that they can get a dramatic effect rather than a realistic one. When you are watching a film your not supposed to feel the director's voice dictating every single movement, you're supposed to feel like your watching something real and you are part of it.
Overall, I hated this film, and I hate that I hated it because it's a true story, but it seems more that this film was made more for the sake of money rather than the sake of giving justice to the family that actually suffered through these events.
