Product Overview

Lace up your kicks and hit the courts with this exclusive double feature DVD! Starting in 1993 with the original Hardwood Dreams film, the series has now come full circle with 2004's Hardwood Dreams: Ten Years Later! Get both classic sports documentaries on a single DVD!

Hardwood Dreams: Volume 1 picks up where Hoop Dreams left off. This time, the subjects are the Varsity basketball team of Inglewood, California's Morningside High School. Take a season-long look at the Los Angeles City Champs of 1992 as they battle gangs, egos, underage drinking, jealousy, brushes with the law and SATs as they pursue back-to-back championships. This in-depth film tackles the societal pressures of an inner-city group of men with a common goal.

Hardwood Dreams: Ten Years Later gives us a complete update on the Morningside starting five, 10 years later. What becomes of the high school stars? Do any of them make it to the NBA? Did all of the hard work pay off? In this 2-volume set, you will get the answers to all of these questions and many more.

ReviewSource Variety
Review "Hardwood Dreams: Ten Years Later" provides a sobering yet engaging look at how the pro basketball aspirations of five African-American high school champs in Fredric Golding's original docu panned out...or didn't. Earlier pic was overshadowed by same year's identically themed "Hoop Dreams"...A decade ago, the Morningside High School Monarchs basketball team from Inglewood, Calif., was en route to a state basketball championship, its starting five tipped for collegiate/pro glory...None made it to the NBA, although one made the minor leagues. Most remain reluctant to surrender pro hopes, though at age 28 they're old by NBA draft standards. Personalities are vivid (if not always sympathetic), tech aspects OK, though returning narrator Wesley Snipes is stuck with banal prose.
