In life, every season counts.
Roy gets cut from his high school football team just days after his estranged father dies. For him, football is more than a proving ground; it is a promised escape from his lonely rural existence and salvation from the paralyzing passivity that dominates his life. Enter Gideon, a loner living on the roughneck fringe who is looking for “gamers” – kids who scrap hard – to play on his six-man football squad. Roy joins the Renegades, and he and Gideon enter into tenuous friendship that pushes the limits of male bonding.

Amy plays Doreen. It’s a super tiny role, in fact Amy is really only seen in the background for the most part. She is a cheerleader for the Bison Football team and has relations with a few of the players. You see more of her character on the Region 1 DVD, she has two deleted scenes; one where she flirts with Ryan Gosling’s character and another where she is making out in a car with his friend.

“For all the violence that erupts, The Slaughter Rule doesn’t have much dramatic momentum. This promising but confused first film is best viewed as a touching portrait of thwarted, volatile male passion in a world where you could almost say that geography is destiny.” – Stephen Holden,
