Storyline

Jordan Landa is not your average Latin girl. She's Jewish. She has dreams - big ones. As a rising star in the debate world her elusive dreams seem finally within her grasp. But when the "perfect guy" from her past reappears, so do her desires for a life she thought she didn't want. With beautiful Miami as a backdrop, a cutting-edge soundtrack, and a hot sexy young cast, it is the perfect setting for a girl to choose between love and debate. "Love and Debate" tells the story of a girl who grows up in a family where the customary role of women is to get married to a Jewish man and have kids. Yet this is not enough for Jordan, she aspires to be something more. In her senior year of high school, with the help of a teacher, Coach Amal, she finds herself attracted to the debate scene. Immediately, she knows she's found her calling and quickly becomes one of the top debaters in the country, earning a scholarship to Harvard. While at college, through a bad breakup and a horrifying sexual ... Written by Anonymous

Not worth it...
12 June 2006 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

Saw this at CineVegas yesterday, it was absolutely awful. Produced by a family member of one of the prominent Cinevegas sponsors, this film is a testament to mediocrity. The film picks up and drops off story lines like dirty laundry, and not a single character is believable. Sean Astin plays a hippy debate coach to a 36 year old high school student, a cowboy runs the Harvard debate team, the Holocaust-surviving grandmother doesn't look a day over 50, and the filmmakers fill in holes in the plot with lines like "I forgot you went to Harvard," and "I forgot you played soccer." This "amateur hour" production is definitely worth missing.
