|The real Shoeless Wonders|
Sara Elizabeth Timmins is at it again, this time making the feature film “Shoeless Wonders” in Lynchburg. This is a movie about a high school football team at the Presbyterian Children’s Home in the Hill City during the 1920s, which went eight years without a defeat and without giving up a point.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in the fall.
