Sports Films at Sundance

At the festival, skiing takes a backseat to youth boxing, a loser horse and a cross-tundra trek for a basketball tournament.

Sports movies typically fall into three categories: uplifting (Hoosiers, Field of Dreams), comedy (Caddyshack, Major League) or heavy drama (Million Dollar Baby, Chariots of Fire). This year's Sundance Film Festival, which starts today, gives moviegoers a little of each. Here’s a round-up of the athletic pictures premiering in Park City over the next ten days.
