"From the Rough" 

The High Falls Film Festival is still six months away, but this Friday, April 25, the festival will host a special screening of the sports drama "From the Rough," at the Little Theatre. The film tells the story of Dr. Catana Starks (Taraji P. Henson, "Hustle and Flow"), the first African-American woman to coach a Division 1 athletics team, as she leads the men's golf team of Tennessee State University to its first national title. Friday also marks the film's national release following a lengthy battle between director Pierre Bagley and producer Michael Critelli (a Rochester native) over artistic control of the movie. Originally completed in 2011, the film has supposedly changed shape over the years, and what's emerged is a well-acted — the cast also includes Michael Clarke Duncan and Harry Potter's Tom Felton — pleasantly formulaic story that sticks to a standard story trajectory, as a dedicated coach fights to mold a ragtag group of youths into a winning team.
