Movie Preview: A “Southerner” (Canadian) gets Inuit kids interested in lacrosse — “The Grizzlies”

It’s a sports dramedy in the traditional “McFarland USA” (and 1900 variations) mold.

But with violence, life or death consequences and traditional native ways of life and mistrust of “Southerners.” When you live above the Arctic circle, even Canadians are Southerners.

Cute. But again, the stakes are a lot higher than even “Crooked Arrows,” which covered the same sport from a Native American point of view. Seeing as how North American tribes invented it, that’s only fair.

“The Grizzlies” growl March 20.
