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 film provides keen insights on LGBTQ rights and gay athletes in sports.
THE RUGBY PLAYER is being made available to stream online for the first time to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 and as a tribute to Alice, who passed away this past year.
