The Rugby Player is an uplifting and stereotype-shattering documentary that tells the
story of a mother, a son, and what it takes to be a hero. The film explores the lives of
Mark Bingham, one of the passengers of United Flight 93 on 9/11, and his mother, Alice
Hoagland, a former United Airlines flight attendant. The Rugby Player is an intimate
portrait of how a son's heroism can inspire a nation, and how a mother's love can turn
profound loss into unshakable resolve. Utilizing footage shot by Bingham himself, this
timely film provides keen insights for the national debates on LGBT rights, marriage
equality and gay athletes in sports.
