"The Goal" chronicles the lives of two athletes who are on an adrenaline track, one to the Olympics and the other to the world of Pro Soccer. Steve and Jason cross paths while rebuilding their lives following severe accidents. Tragedy affects everyone, not just the injured. Much like an epicenter of an earthquake, it touches many but everyone reacts differently. "Life is a Journey Within" but they have "The Goal, One Dream, One Mission, Bending Steel to Make It Happen"!Written by
Excellent, educational, thought provoking and inspirational film!!
This film is a must see for everyone! Family friendly and bold. I'm amazed of what was accomplished with such a small budget compared to most other films. I can't imagine making any film with a $50,000 budget! It was "reality" based cinematography blended with artful snapshots that provoke the entire spectrum of human emotion.
Most of us will be fortunate enough to never have to experience first hand what it's like to loose full use of our bodies and limbs; we take so much for granted! The film has relevance for everyone, regardless as we all suffer loss in some way or have watched someone we know suffer with similar struggles. All of us can relate to craving the immediate gratification of the "adrenaline rush" that drives and motivates us. But just one cruel twist of fate could put any one of us in a similar situation.
Darla Rae drives home this harsh reality of life as a quadriplegic at every stage without fear of "offending" the viewer with stark scenes that drive home the reality that while the physical condition may be offensive (on so many levels), the spiritual condition can overcome any obstacle, turning the "curse" into "blessing". How small simple acts of kindness can change lives.
Even with such limited resources, she simultaneously composes subtle and tasteful cinematography that shows the beauty within the tragedy, the strength of spirit we all possess to overcome any obstacle; the victory of faith over adversity. The Goal skillfully illustrates value of love and support in our lives and the human connection's affect on the human condition. Brava Darla Rae...BRAVISIMO!!
