From the moment I heard of Breaking the Press I was intrigued. I hadn’t heard of it, until about a month before its DVD release, but it sounded like the type of movie that was right up my ally.

The movie is a prodigal son story as told by Tex Summers as he is interviewed by a sports magazine reporter. It stars Drew Waters (TV’s “Friday Night Lights”) as Joe Conaghey, a high school basketball coach whose Christian faith is tested by a season of discontent. Joe hits rock bottom when one of his two adopted sons Josh (the team’s talented but self-centered star) transfers to a big-city school, betraying his teammates and family.

Ted Baehr (MovieGuide.org) said, “If you liked Facing The Giants, you will love Breaking the Press.” I couldn’t agree more. Even if you aren’t a basketball fan (or even a sports fan), this movie will entertain you. It is a well written, well acted movie that is inspiring and offers a great positive message in a very entertaining format.

It is refreshing to see a family-friendly movie that doesn’t show explicit sex fon screen. Although the movie does have some sexual situations, they are presented in a family friendly way. This is certainly a movie that the entire family can watch together without guilt or shame.

The DVD includes a behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of the film. 

Breaking the Press was released on DVD by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. It has received the Dove Foundation’s “Family-Approved” seal for all audiences over the age of twelve. I highly recommend that you watch this film with your family tonight.

The soundtrack will be available on CURB Records featuring Jamie Slocum and other known contemporary Christian Artists.
