Read the Full Story from the Los Angeles TimesThe real miracle about the movie "Miracle," which chronicles the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team's upset of the Soviets and its subsequent gold-medal triumph at Lake Placid, N.Y., is that those who lived it say it does justice to their remarkable story, which will resonate as long as there are sports and underdogs and dreams.
Nineteen of the 20 players attended a screening Monday before getting star treatment at a premiere at El Capitan theater. Only Mike Ramsey was missing, busy with his duties as an assistant coach of the Minnesota Wild.
Some had seen it before but many got their first look at the Walt Disney Pictures production Monday; all praised Kurt Russell's portrayal of visionary coach Herb Brooks, who did the supposedly impossible in leading them past the Soviets and then warning them they would "take it to their graves" if they didn't beat the Finns for the gold medal. Brooks died in a car crash in August after most of the film was shot, but his son, Dan, daughter, Kelly, and wife, Patti, were at the screening.
