The Slaughter Rule (2002)
It's sort of a sports story, but a very odd one. Ryan Gosling plays a kid who is cut from his high school football team. David Morse recruits him to play roughneck six-on-six football in money games. This is a sport played by guys who just love to play ball. They play in the snow, in windy open fields, where the crowd is sitting in cars on the sidelines. They play for pride, and a sense of accomplishment, and the sense of comradeship, and maybe because they are more than a little crazy.
