a powerful cautionary tale
6 October 2001 | by dtucker86See all my reviews

This is one film that I feel has been really overlooked. Both Broilns give great performances and people who just remember Josh from his role in The Goonies will really be shocked. His character is basically a likeable kid just driven to win. I think this film says something about how we pressure our young atheletes to bring home the Gold at all costs. Its surely a warnig to heed. Not to give anything away, but the fact that this film does not have a happy ending really helps. It gets your attention, makes it more realistic and really stays in your mind long after the final credits.
