"Touchback"

Ever wanted to relive a pivotal moment in your life?

In Touchback, that's the opportunity afforded to a washed-up high school quarterback Scott (Brian Presley), who suddenly gets the opportunity to replay his final football game (an injury ended his once-promising playing career) in hopes that it may produce a more successful outcome. The catch? He'd have to give up the life he's currently living, which includes a wife (Melanie Lynskey) and children.

Kurt Russell plays the high school football coach and Christine Lahti doles out advice as Scott's protective mother in the upcoming film.

Some of Russell's lines include:

"The future is just a bunch of what-you-do-right-nows strung together."
"The standard of your life will not be determined by how you play football but by how well you confront adversity."
"Attitude wins football games!"
"It's your choice!"

Directed by Don Handfield, Touchback is slated for theatrical release on April 13.
