Nominated for an Oscar in 1994 and often referenced as one of the all-time greatest sporting movies, Hoop Dreams focuses on two ordinary inner-city kids who dare to dream the impossible. Beginning with casual games in the urban playground and ending with the possibility of college basketball offers, Hoop Dreams is an age-old story about never giving up on your passions. Filmed over a five-year period, Hoop Dreams follows young Arthur Agee and William Gates as they navigate the complex, competitive world of scholastic athletics while striving to overcome the intense pressures of family life and the realities of their rough Chicago streets.
