{Exclusive Interview} Taraji P. Henson + Letoya Luckett Talk From the Rough Movie Thursday 24 April, 2014

FROM THE ROUGH is based on the inspiring true story of Coach Catana Starks and her seemingly insurmountable journey to inspire a team of young athletes deeply enough for them to believe in themselves and become champions – in their own lives. “I believe what makes us successful is that one teacher, that one coach, that one mentor who at the right time, said something or did something that changed the course of our life and put us in the right direction,” says Michael Critelli, the film’s producer. “This film is an effort to celebrate everyday heroes, and for me, this story isn’t about golf, it’s about the essence of what makes people successful in all walks of life.”

Coach Starks made history as the first African American woman to coach an all ­men’s collegiate team, overcoming many obstacles and silencing many naysayers to bring them to an all ­time record championship season.

FROM THE ROUGH is one of the last film’s to feature a performance by the late Michael Clarke Duncan. In it, Duncan portrays a quiet force at the university whose presence and constant encouragement helps Coach Starks recall her own strength and draw upon it to succeed.

I had the opportunity to participate in an exclusive interview with the stars of the film Taraji P. Henson and Letoya Luckett to hear their viewpoints for their roles in the upcoming movie.
