Rudy, A Review

801 words - 3 pages

"Rudy", set in 1975 is an award winning drama in which years of effort are rewarded by a brief moment of glory. The movie is based on the true story of Daniel Ruttiger, but was also known as Rudy among his family and friends. Rudy was five foot and weighed in at a hundred nothing.

In a movie review article an author shows us how Pete, Rudy's best friend, inspires Rudy by saying some important words, "having dreams is what makes life tolerable" (Richard Harrington, 1). This gives Rudy a reason to reach for his dream and to never give up. With the possibility that anything can happen at any time, Rudy was determined to accomplish hi s goal of playing ball.

The second aspect that was noticed bout Rudy was the dedication that he kept...
