Miracle

It's about the 1980 US Olympic hockey team. Normally I don't like to see movies where I know the ending - but this movie really surprised me. Good family "feel good" movie. Of course it helps if you're a US citizen. ;^)


He, he, did you know that part of that movie was filmed in Canada? In Rossland, BC, to be precise, a little town of 3000 in the W Kootenays, where I happen to live. And, it's not a very accurate film :)
