"Friday Night Lights" (2004)

Friday Night Lights Movie Synopsis: A town for sale, Odessa, Texas has seen better days--the financial bust evident in its boarded-up shops and broken lives. Yet one hope sustains the community where, once a week during the fall, the town and its dreams come alive beneath the dazzling and disorienting Friday night lights...when the Permian High Panthers take to the field.

Movie Review: "Friday Night Lights"
Director Peter Berg took his cousin's best-selling novel, "Friday Night Lights," and adapted it for the screen, bringing his own style and voice to the football film. Like the book, the resulting film doesn't paint the prettiest picture of a small Texas town, but it does provide a brutally realistic look at the Permian Panthers football program back in the late 80s.
