Storyline

When Allie (Danielle Evon Ploeger) returns home during her final college summer break, she doesn't anticipate staying long, but that all changes when there's a death in the family and Allie inherits her childhood home. Her life-long BFF, Kenzie (Kelsey Thomas) helps her deal with her loss, and other family drama, by forcing her to join The Browncoats, the team she captains in the small town's co-ed softball league. Kenzie's advice for Allie is simple... When life sucks, just grab your glove, and grab a ball. Everything just sort of fades away when you're playing catch! Written by Lex Lybrand

Feels claustrophobic
20 May 2014 | by vanmag85See all my reviews

Not a bad little indie joint, but the constant stream of straight-angle mid-shots and closeups leave the viewer feeling claustrophobic and uncomfortable. I didn't know it was possible to show a baseball game in only mid-shots and closeups but it's done in this one, and it left me literally aching for a nice, wide establishing shot of anything. I watched it hoping for something light but poignant (think "Drinking Buddies" or "Save the Date") and was a little disappointed because the characters seem to lack any sense of humor. That main character's bad attitude could have really used a razor wit, and the best friend needed a boost too. The plot just sort of plods along, is a bit disjointed (where did the random kickball rivalry come from?) and seems to suffer from a genre-identity crisis. That being said the acting wasn't bad and the score/music were fantastic. Nice effort from a bunch of first timers with potential.
