In the movie Forever Strong, directed by Ryan Little, we are introduced to the character of Rick Penning, played by Sean Faris. Rick is an arrogant and talented rugby player who finds himself in a juvenile detention center after a DUI accident. His coach, Larry Gelwix, played by Gary Cole, sees potential in Rick and offers him a second chance to play rugby for the Highland Rugby team.

Rick is skeptical of the offer, but he soon discovers that the Highland Rugby team is unlike anything he has ever experienced. The team is not just about winning, but about instilling a sense of discipline and camaraderie in the players. The team's motto is "no excuses", which means that the players take full responsibility for their actions and work to improve themselves both on and off the field.

As Rick begins to train with the team, he quickly realizes that this is not going to be an easy journey. He is faced with tough opponents both on and off the field. His father is disappointed in him and their relationship is strained. He must also confront his demons and past mistakes in order to fully embrace the Highland Rugby way of life.

One of Rick's biggest challenges comes in the form of his former teammates from his old team, the Salt Lake Highlanders. Led by the team captain, Lars, played by Penn Badgley, they are determined to beat the Highland Rugby team and show Rick that he made the wrong choice in joining them.

Throughout the movie, we see Rick's growth both as a rugby player and as a person. He learns to work with his teammates, rather than against them. He forms friendships with his new teammates and gains their respect. He also gains the respect of Coach Gelwix, who sees the potential in him and helps him to become a better person.

There are many powerful moments in the movie, such as when Rick gives a speech to the team before a crucial game, telling them that they are not just playing for themselves, but for each other. The game itself is intense and gripping, with both teams fighting tooth and nail for the win.

Overall, Forever Strong is a movie about redemption, discipline, and the power of teamwork. It shows that anyone can change and improve themselves, even in the face of great adversity. The performances of Sean Faris, Penn Badgley, and Gary Cole are excellent, creating a truly memorable experience for viewers.

Forever Strong is a 2008 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 52 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.1 and a MetaScore of 37.
