THE LIGHTER SIDE

Champions

JAVIER FESSER
Spain, 2018
123 minutes, Color

Skewering every politically correct cliché, Champions became the highest-grossing Spanish language film of 2018 in Spain and won three Goyas (Spain's Oscar©), including Best Film, before becoming Spain's entry in this year's Oscars© for Best Foreign Language Film. Just when you think you know where this comedy about an assistant coach in the professional Spanish basketball league is going, it presents a buzzer-beating surprise ending. Marco, a victim of his own ill temper, is fired from his team and after a brush with the law is sentenced to coaching a motley crew of people with disabilities, some of whom can't get a shoe on the right foot. In time, he learns that having a mental disability doesn't mean you aren't intelligent and that keeping your priorities straight is what really counts in life. —Miguel Pendás
