You wont get any other documentary with this type of footage
'Trophy kids' was an up to snuff documentary reviewing the life of children and adolescents whose lives are being influenced by sport and their over-the-top-sport-parents. This is an unusual film. You wont get many like this. This movie is actually going into the lives of these kids and being told from their perspective, as well as a lot of it being told from the parents perspective. This documentary is unusual , not only because its talking about an unusual topic , but because it is actually going into the lives of the kids in great detail.
It can also be a rather blue movie, since the parents are going over-the-top and sometimes being unfair with their kid. Its a good documentary , because its showing the audience more or less everything they want to know about their lives and not missing out anything. It is made really well , going from one kids life to another, and at the end finishing it off with a touching ending. There is a big message in this documentary(that is why it is a good movie to watch). When you watch it, you will have to figure out that message for yourself.
