GRACIE cover image
Enjoyed it. "It was a good movie!." "It's really, really good. I think it's one of the best movies I've seen." The kids could relate to it and said they thought the story was very believable. They enjoyed the fast action of the soccer games. "I watch sports movies again and I'd watch this one a second time." The whole "fight for what you believe in" concept was well received by our teen jurors. Even those who aren't into soccer enjoyed it. The kids were surprised to see how strongly girls were discriminated against in terms of involvement in sports twenty years ago..
Excellent production. Based on a family's real life story with upbeat music and positive role model for young girls. It shows how really hard work and persistence pays off. Believable acting, realistic scenes and story. It shows how each family member acts out his or her depression after the death of Gracie's brother. Gracie's lack of interest in school and her digression from being the "good kid" she was are realistically depicted as is her drive to play soccer. This movie provides inspiration for anyone who has felt discriminated against. Contains some profanity although it is used judiciously.
