From the director of Bigger Stronger Faster comes an intense look at overbearing parents in sports. The film asks the question "Do we want what's best for our children? Or do we just want them to be the best?" Parts of this film were used in the premier of Peter Berg's HBO series State of Play.
The Documentary seemed to provide an accurate perspective on sports parenting skills. The Documentary made me sick to my stomach, that in this supposedly advanced society such levels of cruelty and inhuman behavior can be exhibited. I give the creators of the Documentary high marks for not dumbing down the content, and giving what seems to be a very dramatic and effecting film, brutally honest.
The parents own words are used, and the children's look of shame, fear, and lack of confidence was heartbreaking to watch. You need a license to drive, to hunt, even to fish, but any idiot can be a parent.
All I can say is they use the death penalty on the wrong people.
These sports parents make Pablo Escobar sound like a boy scout.
