excellent movie with dreary picture of hopelessness
10 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

to me, watching movies is not just killing time or getting thrills out of the monotonous life, it's something i want to get to learn more about someone else' real life in my neighborhood or what is happening right now in a remote place. 'all she can' is such a movie that has made me thinking and pondering of what is the future of America, what kind of hope we got for our young generation. it's not just those kids from their rich families but for those young ones from the constantly struggling mass of this so-called promise land of your American dream. what we got here is a high school immigrant young girl trying so hard to get out and get away from the suffocating hopeless surroundings where she and her family are struggling. her only means to get out is choosing weight lifting not by working in the fast food joint. she tried everything but then decided to cut corners, then facing and dealing with the doomed consequences. those most are law abiding Mexican immigrants for several generations already in the deadbeat Texas small town, their daily struggles are what i have seen all around me, not just in Texas but every states in America. 'American dream' now has become a laughing joke, a once called promise land now seemingly and ironically called as a 'land of broken dreams'. when the only way for some good kids from the poor families is by becoming the chosen ones for boxing, track and field, dancing, playing all kinds of balls, now, even a young female high school girl has to choose 'weight lifting' to get scholarship, to get out of her dying small town in Texas (and her brother, as always, only the kids from poor families or poor immigrant families got the privilege to serve their ((adopted)) country), then i have no doubt that America got serious problem. how could we make fun of the Chinese or the Russians, mocking their young athletes are the products of the state? while pointing your finger at them and making jokes at them, why don't you have the courage and decency to look at yourself in the mirror? what makes you think that America or American are so different from them?

this is a very sad almost break-my-heart movie. it's so hopeless and so hurt to see such a strong-minded young kid fighting a hopeless war she could never win. even she did pass the wt. lifting contest, she still get so many hurdles and obstacles in her future to overcome. the poverty of her family is the original sin she always has to deal with again and again.
