The inspiring true story behind one of the greatest moments in sports history — the 1980 United States ice hockey team's triumphant Olympic victory against the Soviet Union.

Mister Roberts is aboard a U.S. cargo ship, working in the Pacific during the Second World War. He'd do anything to leave the quiet of the ship to join in the "action." Trouble is the captain of the ship is a bit of a tyrant and isn't willing to sign Roberts' transfer requests. Also on board is Ensign Pulver, who avoids work as best he can, whilst living off the riches of his buying and selling. Roberts and the crew are in constant battle, even over the smallest of disagreements.

In the wake of an eventful trip abroad, Claudio and Benedick arrive safely back in their hometown of Messina, where Claudio wastes no time declaring his love for Hero. Alas, when clever Benedick learns that his friend has poured his heart out to the daughter of powerful governor Leonato, he chides his old friend relentlessly over the syrupy assertion while engaging Leonato's outspoken niece, Beatrice, in a series of spirited debates. Meanwhile, somewhere amidst all of the pointed insults and playful barbs, something that strangely resembles true love seems to blossom between Benedick and Beatrice.

• Jan. 28 — No movies scheduled due to collection reorganization.
