A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
To be successful in any endeavor requires hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. In the words of Lindsey Vonn: "Sometimes, it's not the successes, but the failures that make you a stronger person."
Positive Role Models
Lindsey Vonn has dedicated her entire life to being a successful skier, and this hard work has paid off with gold medal victories in the Olympics. Like the skier Picabo Street, who inspired Lindsey to be a champion, Vonn strives to be a positive role model for kids, always the last one of the ski team to leave her fans at events, often taking three hours to sign autographs.
Violence & Scariness
A ski accident Vonn suffered is shown as she loses control, rolls over several times, and stops on her back. She discusses how at the time she believed her back had been broken.

While filming a ski run, a man behind the camera yells "f--k." At another point, he yells, "Jesus" as an exclamation. Otherwise, there is no iffy language.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lindsey Vonn: In the Moment is an inspirational documentary about an amazingly successful female athlete that will teach kids that dedication, hard work, and even failure builds strength and achievement. There is a single, unexpected use of the "F" word about halfway through the film. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
This short documentary is a must-see not just for aspiring athletes, but for any child who wants to make their growing-up ambitions a reality. Lindsey Vonn: In the Moment pulls no punches in terms of talking about the hard work, dedication, and sacrifice it requires to be at the top of your game. Interspersed with exciting moments of competitive skiing are scenes of Lindsey Vonn's day-to-day realities -- waking up early, eating egg whites for breakfast, missing out on the fun most young people have at that age -- the less-glamorous aspects of being a gold medalist. It's part autobiography, part sports highlight reel, and part behind-the scenes of Lindsey Vonn's life.
The film does not shy away from the difficulties Vonn had with her family as she grew up -- the sacrifices they had to make to help Vonn achieve her goals. Nor does it shy away from the stresses and pressures Vonn feels to be at the top of her game. Vonn freely discusses how important it is to be a role model for kids, and how the skier Picabo Street inspired Vonn when she was a child. Aside from the jarring use of the "F" word halfway through the film, In the Moment is an enjoyable and inspiring documentary for the entire family.
