Movie: ‘The 5th Quarter’ {Giveaway}

By Wednesday, March 16, 2011 7 No tags Permalink 0


In the tradition of ‘The Blind Side’ comes the inspirational true story……

The 5th Quarter is in theaters in select cities around the nation on March 25th. Based on a true story, The 5th Quarter carries a powerful message of triumphing over tragedy when two parents (Andie MacDowell & Aidan Quinn) and their surrounding community come together after a devastating car accident. After the tragic car crash takes the life of his younger brother Luke, Wake Forest’s football player Jon Abbate (Ryan Merriman) helps lead his team in their most successful season.

If you love inspirational sports stories and want to see a heart-warming film about having gratitude for life and overcoming obstacles, gather your family and friends to go see The 5th Quarter on Friday, March 25th. Watch the Trailer here!


The 5th Quarter has already had a major impact on those that have seen it in early screenings and Facebook fans are raving about the inspirational impact this incredible film will have on those who see it.

“The story was incredibly moving, and it was apparent that Rick Bieber took great care to be as true to the real-life story as possible. I thought the moment to moment portrayal of what the family went through right after the accident felt very authentic.” -Kim Peeler, AOL

“This is going to be a “MUST SEE MOVIE!” -Dan Ellenberger

“What a powerful story… It is a breath of fresh air to see organ donation in the form of a true story…” -Christina Leahy

“Can’t wait to see this!! My son was an organ and tissue donor at the age of 18. I’m so proud of our heroes…the donors!” -Lynn Parker

“DO NOT MISS SEEING IT. It is incredible! Please… if you thought for one moment, The Blind Side was a good movie – then, do not pass on seeing The 5th Quarter. You will not be sorry.” -Ty Manns
