Warning: Gleason Trailer Will Make You Cry

THE TRAILER for the movie about Steve Gleason packs a punch. "You know it’s gonna be a cry-fest when the movie trailer alone makes you well up," writes Yahoo's Kevin Powley about the award-winning documentary detailing Gleason's battle with ALS that opens nationwide on July 29.

Gleason premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It has since won audience awards at South by Southwest and the Seattle International Film Festival. It was shown in New Orleans this week, with WGNO's Stephanie Oswald's offering this review.  Here's the trailer:

Before going on to fame with the Saints, Steve Gleason was a standout linebacker for the Cougars and a mainstay on the 1997 squad that was the first WSU team to earn a trip to the Rose Bowl in 67 years. The Spokane native concluded his WSU career among the 10 most prolific tacklers in school history.
