Miami Theatrical Premiere!
Harvard Beats Yale 29-29
(Kevin Rafferty/2008)
With Tommy Lee Jones, Brian Dowling, Frank Champi, Meryl Streep

HARVARD STADIUM, NOVEMBER 23, 1968: for the first time since 1909, the football teams of Harvard and Yale are undefeated as they meet for their final game. Yale is heavily favored, with Brian Dowling, its captain and quarterback, satirized in classmate Garry Trudeau’s Doonesbury strip. Harvard’s lineman is Tommy Lee Jones —Al Gore’s roommate. Kevin Rafferty (ATOMIC CAFÉ) intercuts original footage with the hilarious, suspenseful recollections of the 50 men who played in what has become one of college football’s most famous games.
“The best football game I ever saw. . . for pure narrative beauty, culminating in the athletic equivalent of a MULTIPLE ORGASM, it wasn’t just the best game I ever saw – it was THE BEST GAME THAT EVER WAS. . . Now you, too, can experience the magic.”– Hendrik Hertzberg, The New Yorker online
“PREPOSTEROUSLY ENTERTAINING. . . A narrative that pulses with the artful, exciting beats of a thriller.” –Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“The best football movie I’ve ever seen!”– J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
