Predictable Coming of Age Sport Movie
This is a good film for young kids who are sport obsessed. It allows for discussions with your child regarding topics like resilience, perseverance, commitment and maturity.
It is undeniably predictable and often cheesy, but that makes it more accessible to younger audiences than films like Basketball Diaries, Varsity Blues, etc. There are so few lacrosse films, so that may be an entry point for some kids. As always, it is important to discuss the film with your children.
My main complaint is that Adam Beach's character is flat, used as a stereotypical Aboriginal guide for the lost white youth. Not as good as Crooked Arrows, but it is acceptable for the Hallmark movie crowd.
