Share This Resource

The downloadable resource below is a part of PCA's collection of movie discussion guides, which aim to help you make the most out of movie viewing with your team or child. Movies provide a plethora of "teachable moments" that can be seized upon by coaches and parents to help young athletes take away lessons that will help them be successful, contributing members of society.

From the rough-edged courts of New York City to her role as a three-time NCAA Champion under the late legendary Coach Pat Summitt at the University of Tennessee and onward as a top draft pick in the WNBA, Chamique Holdsclaw had it all. Then, her long-suppressed battle with mental disorders emerged to derail her career and threaten her life.

Mind/Game, Directed and Produced by Rick Goldsmith, intimately chronicles Holdsclaw’s athletic accomplishments and personal setbacks, and her decision, despite public stigma, to become an outspoken mental health advocate. The film, narrated by Glenn Close, tells a powerful story of courage, struggle, and redemption. To learn more about Mind/Game, go to mindgamefilm.org.
