“The rugby player”


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 unfathomable loss into unshakable resolve.

Utilizing footage shot by Bingham himself, this timely film provides keen insights for the national debates on LGBTQ rights, marriage equality and gay athletes in sports.
