Storyline

To his friends and to his girlfriend Zoe, Nick is stuck in perpetual adolescence: he's approaching 30, lives off a trust fund, has no job and no responsibilities. When Zoe abruptly leaves him and New York for a job in Los Angeles, Nick comes up with a strategy to get her back: taking a job as a soccer coach of a junior-high team. At first it's a diversion - just a strategy. Then, primarily through Hector, the team's best player, Nick engages. In the process, he meets an ER doc who interests him, goes behind Hector's father's back to keep the lad on the team, and realizes he's conflicted when he gets the chance to reconnect with Zoe. Can arrested development give way to maturity? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

great small movie
7 March 2014 | by claudioszynkierSee all my reviews

what to expect from life when life changes?

what's next?

mix it and ball game and you get "the coach".

do not expect a groundbreaking film, but expect at least identify yourself there. little big movies are about that.

this story can be installed in our imagination and it is there under several different ways. but here is a very well-made, articulated and perfect genre film, with a great capacity of holding those who watch. with an outlook on life and on people that you won't see in every film of that particular genre. simple and delicious.
