This is a delightful family-friendly film about the wonderfully inspiring true story of the birthplace of women's basketball. Cathy Rush (played by Carla Gugino) is a woman with a dream, and the courage and conviction to commit herself to achieving it.
"Mighty Macs" is a story which clearly illustrates what can be gained through sacrifice, hard work, and perseverance. It also conveys the message that women should not allow themselves to be defined by others, but should believe in themselves and not be afraid to set their goals high.
Cathy Rush (who was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008) was a role model for so many young women who learned from her that teamwork is vital, and that something worth doing is worth doing well. This is a film that speaks volumes about equality between the sexes, and the potential within each of us.
Thank you to producer Tim Chambers and actor Carla Gugino for making a film like this that illustrates the real and substantial contribution which women make in our society. Well done!
