Don't miss this one!
10 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being privileged to see this film before its release, I can't wait for the premiere.

Sarah Megan Thomas, (author, producer AND star), and James Van Der Beek give excellent performances. Glenn Morshower (nice to see him in something other than military garb), is wonderful as the Olympic Coach. The entire supporting cast did a great job.

Being a "Philly" native, I really enjoyed the portrayal of this beautiful city. The rowing sequences are amazing!

Exceptional work in the filming, acting and directing (Ben Hickernell).

The film gives insight into what it means to be part of a winning team, the good and the bad. You will love it whether or not you are into rowing. It's a great story.

This is one not to be missed!
