Storyline

Coming of age in small-town Oklahoma. High schooler Cal Chetley is a brainy beanpole who lives with his widowed mother. Ten years earlier his father, a state wrestling champion, died in a car crash. Cal's older brother Mike, also a former wrestling champion but now down and out at 28, is estranged from the family. Over the course of a fall and winter, Cal joins the high school wrestling team while searching out Mike to ask for help. Mike rejects the offer, but Cal is persistent. Will Mike accept the challenge or is he destined to let Cal down? Giving advice and encouragement are an enigmatic old man named Red and a quirky friend named Luli. Then, there's Cal's mom who must be reckoned with. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In the USA, there was a mere 18 days between the theatrical and home video releases. This is possibly a record for the shortest amount of time it has ever taken for any film to go from the cinema to home video in North America. On September 10, 2010 the movie was released in a limited capacity theatrically, and it was released on September 28, 2010 on DVD (sold exclusively at Walmart) and Blu-Ray (sold exclusively at Best Buy). The DVD and Blu-ray were later released to all national retailers on December 28, 2010. See more »

Goofs

No wrestling coach would permit any of his wrestlers to make a grand solo entrance (with lighting effects and pyrotechnics) or enter a competition wearing a warm-up outfit that wasn't team issued. (Officials might jump all over this, too, especially at the District level.) See more »

Quotes

Cal Chetley: Hey, Donald, do you think I'm the worst 135-pounder in the region?
Donald Worthington.: You haven't officially wrestled in enough matches to be considered the worst wrestler in the region, according to the state athletic commission. Do they think there's anyone in the region you can defeat before the year's over? It's mathematically possible.
Cal Chetley: Oh, well, thank's for not saying no.

What's there NOT to like?
29 October 2010 | by (Wroclaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

I mean, you got drama with a hint of mystery; you got sport emotions and suspense, you got genuine character development (fair play for young actors here), way above decent cast and that feel-good touch after leaving the theater…but that's just my personal take, as an active combat sports contester I must say that this side of the movie gives you pretty good inside on how it looks like through the eyes of an athlete. It's not another "bullied kid finds his master and kicks ass" movie, it is way beyond that, best to see it for yourself, you can easily take your gf with you and she will love it as well.

To wrap it all up – great movie, great cast, great feeling after – why would you give that a miss?
