The film tells the story of HBCU coach Catana Starks, the first woman to ever lead an all-men's team at the collegiate level.
The story of Tennessee State University coach Catana Starks gets the Hollywood touch in a biopic starring Taraji P. Henson and the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
From the Rough tells the inspirational story of how Starks—the first woman to ever coach an all-men’s team at the collegiate level—overcame deep prejudices and incredible odds but still managed to take the HBCU’s golf team to an all-time record championship season.
The film was one of actor Michael Clarke Duncan’s last films before his untimely death in September 2012.
From the Rough opens in theaters on April 25, 2014.
