Storyline

Lee Bishop does not have the same problems as your average teenager. When his mother leaves for Iraq, Lee is forced to grow up quickly. As though maintaining his varsity spot on the wrestling team wasn't enough to deal with, his younger sister Tina decides to join the team. In addition Tina is being aggressively pursued by an upperclassman and since their father is out of the picture, Lee feels he is her only defense against the corrupting influences around her. Enter Joe Kross, the owner of a local gym, who agrees to help coach the wrestling team. Because Lee is without guidance, Joe's increasing influence threatens to push Lee over the precipice. Lee must decide how far he is willing to go to secure his own future while protecting his sister - all before personal demons, and an act of sexual violence threaten to destroy him. Written by J. Chappell

Perfect Sport review
21 April 2008 | by SFEricaSee all my reviews

I loved this movie! Caught it at Houston Worldfest where it won for Best Drama. For those of you who haven't seen it yet (don't worry, no spoilers here) here's a mini-review:

Building on a very creative script with an unexpected plot and believable, fully human characters, the actors make unusual choices that bring even more life to their roles. Your typical sports movie this ain't. Perfect Sport is also set against a beautiful score. I'd recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see something original and gripping. It's so nice to see a movie where you don't know everything that's going to happen in advance. Loved it! Hope it comes out in wider release soon.
