Storyline

Students from South Los Angeles fly to New Zealand to play Rugby. A sport that is increasingly popular in the United States, the tour provides these students and the Kiwi teams they battle a rare opportunity to dig beneath the surface of things. On the field, troubled histories melt away, and we see boys rise as men; girls lead as women stronger for facing up to a challenge. 'Red, White, Black and Blue' provides a sensitive take on a rough game: it blends on-field triumph with off-field tragedy. If the spirit of these teens is any indication, the Olympic Rugby Gold Medal - currently held by the United States since it was last an Olympic sport in 1924 - may just be defensible after all.

Very inspiring and positive....
10 September 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I don't know how easy it will be for you to see "Red White Black & Blue". I just saw it on an Air New Zealand in-flight entertainment service--which isn't surprising considering the subject matter.

The story is about a charter school in Los Angeles that takes yearly trips abroad for some good will games against other rugby playing schools. In this case, they take the kids to New Zealand--the heart of the best rugby in the world. Considering that these kids come from a tough part of LA, it is nice to watch as the kids generally seemed so well-mannered, decent and intelligent--and are a wonderful contrast to the popular images of South Central LA! Additionally, you really pull for the kids and the film really hits an emotional bullseye near the end. Well worth seeing, VERY inspiring and very well made.
