The US men’s basketball team has taken home Olympic gold medals for over a decade now, so it’s easy to forget that heading into the 2008 Beijing games, their victory was no guaranteed layup. Coming off of a resounding defeat in Athens four years before, the all-star team had something to prove for the first time. Now a new documentary tells the story of this so-called Redeem Team — and what it took to turn some of the best basketball players in the world into underdogs.
