A minor gem
19 December 2011 | by (US) – See all my reviews

One of those interesting tiny budget films that has its problems (in this case a few sports movie clichés), but is so clearly made from the heart, nicely acted by a cast you don't know, and trying to not just follow convention that it feels like you've stumbled onto a minor gem.

This is a look at a working class Canadian family mired in obsession with hockey, the boys pushed by their obsessed mother to try to be pro players whether they have the talent, the drive or not.

We've seen films, often around boxing, that examine some of the same family dynamics, and maybe it was just the change in location, sex of parent (here, mom not dad is the slave driver) and sport itself that makes it seem new.

But I think it's really in the little details. The way these grown men can come to near blows over who plays what team on an old kid's hockey board game, or how they subvert each other on the rink and off to try to get approval and attention – in short a study of two men suffering from major arrested development that feels sad and true, and makes this admittedly 'little' picture feel like it has real value.
