Movie Info

From the Rough, starring Academy Award nominees Taraji P. Henson and Michael Clarke Duncan and Tom Felton, is the inspirational true story of Catana Starks from historically black university Tennessee State, who became the first African-American woman ever to coach an all-men's team at the collegiate level. Through grit and determination, she overcame incredible odds and deep-seated prejudice from all corners to guide a rag-tag group of golfers to an all-time record championship season.

Critic Reviews for From The Rough

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Henson nicely captures Starks' determination but also her doubts and personal demons.

April 24, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Solid sports tale has positive messages, feel-good themes.

February 25, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Henson's performance goes a long way toward selling the uniqueness and importance of Starks and her story--which Bagley almost appears determined to flatten out in the most cookie-cutter-familiar way possible.

May 1, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A well-deserved, if syrupy sweet, overdue tribute to an African-American role model and trailblazer.
