Fans of high school football in Texas might have been familiar with the saga of Carter High School's 1988 5A state championship (that was later stripped away) before 2015's Carter High hit theaters, but it's probably worth a watch anyway. Our own Robert Wilonsky gave it a B-, calling it "the flipside to the feel-good story that was Friday Night Lights." 

Interestingly, Carter High writer-director Arthur Muhammad played on that infamous Carter team, so you're getting a version of the story that's very close to the source.

If you missed it during its limited theatrical run last year, Netflix is coming to your rescue. Carter High will land on the streaming service on Nov. 14.

Also coming to Netflix in November: Netflix's own Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Disney's live-action retelling of The Jungle Book and Richard Linklater's Boyhood, which was shot over the course of 12 years.
