Storyline

This is the story of a teenager named Gracie Bowen, who lives in South Orange, New Jersey, is crazy about soccer, as are her three brothers and former soccer star father. Although Gracie wants to join her brothers and father in the nightly practices, she is discouraged by everyone except her elder brother, Johnny. Her father does not believe that girls should play soccer and tells her that she is neither tough enough nor talented enough to play with the boys team. Undeterred, Gracie finds reserves of strength she never knew existed, and persists in changing everyone's beliefs in what she is capable of, including her own. She faces an uphill battle when she fights to give women the opportunity to play competitive soccer. But as the beautiful and strong person that she has always been but she also brings her family together in the face of their own tragedy. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

The female lead was to be cast as part of a nationwide search for an unknown. After two months they went with Lizzie McGuire (2001) star Carly Schroeder who was chosen from over 2,000 girls for the character of Gracie. See more »

Goofs

The film is set in the late 1970's, yet the referees shown are wearing the gold jerseys that are standard today. Then, referees typically wore solid black jerseys with white cuffs and collars. Socks most frequently matched with a solid white top, rather than the three-striped sock. Referee jerseys changed in the 1990s to a fuchsia and black check pattern, and since around 2000 have changed to gold with black pin-striping as seen in the film. See more »

i thought it was entertaining
22 March 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i enjoyed this movie.i thought it was pretty good from an entertainment point of view.however,i didn't fee it was very inspirational and for me,it didn't have the impact that many of the movies of the genre have.i didn't find anything profound about it.i think it may be loosely inspired by real events,which could mean anything as far as movies go.i could not really get into it beyond a superficial level.i'm not sure why.maybe it's because i'm not a real soccer fan.having said that,it was well acted,and well paced.it certainly wasn't boring,by any means.the songs they chose for the movie were also really good.i would probably watch this movie again down the road,though,because as i said,it's enjoyable as entertainment.for me,Gracie is a 7/10
