Awesomely-Amazing and Cool
2 June 2009 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

I just watched this on HBO and I loved it so much. I'm a guy but grew up with three very strong-willed sisters, one of whom was - and remains

  • very athletic. It was no surprise to me, then, that the girls in this
wonderful documentary could go up against boys and give them a run for their money. The coach of the team is documentary director, Jenny Mackenzie. She gets the most out of her players because she treats them with dignity, respect and admiration. You can tell they thrive under her leadership. Part of what is so heartwarming about the film is watching the girls on the team together. They apply bandages, both literal and spiritual, when their teammates fall. This is not about trashing boys and honoring girls; some of the boys show great admiration for the girls. Some face coming to grips with the fact that a girls' team that plays cohesively is probably going to succeed. How many wins, losses and/or ties are there against the boys. I'm not telling, 'cause you have to see it for yourself. You'll be glad you did.
