It's a beauty.
29 March 2010 | by (Red Earth, Saskatchewan) – See all my reviews

This biography of Don Cherry is a labour of love but for Canadians and hockey fans it will be well received. Written by Grapes' son Tim and dedicated to his wife Rose, KEEP YOUR HEAD UP KID is another fine hockey biopic, a worthy companion to NET WORTH. The story is well cast. The familiar faces of the Boston Bruins (Phil Esposito, Bobby Orr, etc.) bare striking resemblances to the star players. Notorious miser Harry Sinden is played by Ian Tracey who has appeared as many real life Canadians in past films (David Milgaard, Dwayne Johnston, Tommy Douglas supporter Charlie Lawson). The star, though, is future star Jared Keeso who plays the arrogant coach turned commentator ringing true. The film is at turns touching and humorous. It will have you cheering on Cherry whether you know the outcome or not. The Canadian soundtrack (BTO, Lighthouse) adds to the 1970s feel of the film. Overall, it's a beauty, eh!
