The Gabby Douglas-Perseverance Succeeds ****
29 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Regina King gives a career defining performance as the resolute mother of 4, determined that her youngest daughter shall succeed as a gymnast.

One weakness of the film was that it was unbelievable that the King character separated from her husband, a man she loved deeply because of his inability to obtain work. After appearing early in the film, he is never seen again.

Other than that flaw, we have a film showing deprivation, setting goals, ready to quit, but ultimate triumph prevailing.

S. Epaitha Merkerson appears as King's mother, the latter taking the family in after the split with her husband.

The film also depicts kindness by the Iowan family who took Gabby in so that she could train under someone she deeply admired and trusted.

The film shows that adversity may be conquered.
