Go See This Movie!

If this true story of quadriplegic rugby players doesn't inspire you in your own life, I feel for you.

While some of the action may be a bit intense for younger viewers, and parent do note there is a small video clip in the film that is shown to paralysis victims about sexuality in their lives after their accidents which may not be appropriate for teens, it isn't obscene or lurid in any respect.

The violence in this project, unlike the relentless and gruesome blood scenes commonly shown on prime time television, is of a contact sport played by men who haven't given up on life and are passionate about the game.

This will be the best film you'll see this summer.

Good For Older Audience

Very Fascinating Movie. Overall good content, but there is an extended scene about sex after becoming a quadriplegic where they show a video that quadriplegics are given to watch when "learning" how to have sex again. It is basically porn and doesn't add anything to the documentary. There is very strong language and lots of insults between competing teams. I don't think this movie is appropriate for children under 18.

Sports and friendship

The filme shows how sport can give a new meaning to live specially for those who had their lives turned upside down by an accident and became diseabled. The value of friendship is also some of the positive messages of the film.
