Crooked Arrows, the first mainstream film featuring the sport lacrosse, is an adrenaline pumping, underdog story of overcoming the odds.
Brandon Routh stars as Joe Logan, a mixed-blood Native American, who has strayed from the core values of his native people. His plan to expand the reservation’s casino is met with a challenge from his traditionalist father, who requires he reconnect with his indigenous spirit before they will grant him access to this land. He is tasked with coaching the reservation’s high school lacrosse team, a rag tag team with a flagging enthusiasm for the game, who must compete against the better equipped and better trained players of the elite Prep School League.
Joe meets the challenge with indifference at first, but ultimately rediscovers his pride, which in turn inspires the team to believe in themselves. Ignited by their heritage and trusting their new-found potential, Joe and the team climb to the state championship finals – where they find themselves once again, pitted against their privileged prep school rivals.
Directed by Steve Rash (American Pie Presents Band Camp), Crooked Arrows stars Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) and Gil Birmingham (Twilight). The film was produced by J. Todd Harris (The Kids Are All Right), Mitchell Peck (Priest), and Adam Leff (The Last Action Hero). In addition, the movie features top lacrosse players from around the country, including a team of Iroquois players as well as professionals such as Paul Rabil, Zack Greer and Brodie Merrill who make cameo appearances, along with other notable lacrosse coaches. The lacrosse action was orchestrated by Sports Studio (Miracle, Game Plan).
