Does this young man look familiar? Yes, this is Rico Rodriguez who plays Manny on the long-running Modern Family series. The role he plays in Endgame is different than the one he plays on the TV show and he does it well.
Endgame is an inspirational drama that is based on a true story. The real life circumstances are compelling and have timely themes most of us can relate to in one way or another – hard work, perseverance through adversity, the importance of family and friends, and strength when dealing with bullies.
The movie has the Dove Family Approved Seal. This would be a good choice for family movie night and could spark some interesting conversations when you’re through.
