Movie Info

Home to the nation's largest Latino immigrant population, East Los Angeles sits squarely in the crossfire of debate about American identity. Yet every November, this community comes together for a distinctly American event, drawing 25,000 proud locals to one of the country's fiercest high school football rivalry games: The East LA Classic. The All-Americans follows four students seeking glory on the field, while grappling with personal obstacles and striving to make sense of their community's place in today's America.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

Billy McMillin's rousing "The All-Americans" serves as a timely take on finding one's identity both on and off the field.

Yes, East L.A. is a community that struggles with poverty and homelessness and crime, but what the film lacks and forgets to capture is that, despite these struggles, and the kids' additional burdens, there is much beauty and joy to be found.

November 7, 2019 | Full Review…

As things stand here, we're certainly curious to see where each student winds up (and, to a lesser extent, who wins the game). But we've hardly had an experience we can't get from a reasonably deep newspaper profile.

Not a sports documentary...seeing what it takes for these Latino boys to get on the East L.A. football field is much more involving than the limited playing time on screen.

January 31, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

A passable documentary that thinks it's a powerful activist statement but is little more than a basic youth sports drama.

December 10, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The All-Americans is the truest underdog story.
