It’s the classic underdog tale: Rudy is expected to take a job in the town steel mill alongside his friends and family but he wants to play football at Notre Dame, despite poor grades, limited athletic skill, and a small stature. Will his spirit and determination earn him a place on the team?
The story is based on the life of Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger. Rudy was written by Angelo Pizzo, a Bloomington native and IU alum, who will join us to welcome you to the event and answer audience questions after the screening! Rudy was directed by David Anspaugh, also an IU alum, and shot in Illinois and Indiana. It was the first film that the Notre Dame administration had allowed to be shot on campus since Knute Rockne, All American in 1940. In 2005, Rudy was named one of the best 25 sports movies of the previous 25 years in two polls by ESPN (#24 by a panel of sports experts, and #4 by ESPN.com users). It was ranked the 54th-most inspiring film of all time in the “AFI 100 Years” series.
