‘Inspirational sports film of the year’*

WHAT: THE MIGHTY MACS – a G-rated, inspiring story of finding the courage to chase your dreams – debuts on DVD Feb. 21. Called “the best inspirational sports film of the year,” THE MIGHTY MACS is based on the true story of Hall of Fame coach Cathy Rush (CARLA GUGINO), and charts the rise from obscurity of a small-college women’s basketball team that won the first national championship in the sport. In its theatrical premiere THE MIGHTY MACS opened as the highest-grossing independent film in the country and the No. 1 film in theaters for the entire family.

SYNOPSIS: Based on a true story, THE MIGHTY MACS was inspired by Hall of Fame Coach Cathy Rush – a woman ahead of her time – who took a seemingly unnoticeable position as the head basketball coach at tiny Immaculata, an all-girls Catholic college in suburban Philadelphia. Courage and determination helped her overcome a myriad of obstacles and in the end lead a ragtag group of girls to the first-ever national championship in women’s college basketball.
