Parents need to know that SHReD: The Asher Bradshaw Story is a very personal documentary sharing the rewards and challenges experienced by young skateboarder Asher Bradshaw, an enormously athletic child. Asher's story, starting at age 6, is told by director Kathy Herndl, who keeps her commentary to a minimum, letting the viewer come to his or her own conclusions. It's more than a sports story about a young prodigy. Given equal time, if not more, is Tom Bradshaw, Asher's dad, a complex man -- smart, loving, driven, emotionally damaged by his past, and relentless in his aspirations for his son as a means of getting his family out of a Los Angeles ghetto. Asher himself is an inspiration, showing heart, empathy, and tremendous grace under pressure and who is keenly aware of what is being asked of him. A few obscenities and curse words appear ("f--k," "p---y," "s--t," "crap," "piss off"); a child farts. Because the movie has a highly charged emotional component and is not simply about exciting competition, skateboard maneuvers, and a little boy surpassing expectations, it's best for teens.
