Despite some of the reviews posted, I have to say I found this film kind of dull.
All the characters were wooden and two dimensional, with the exception of Line herself. No depth, no real reason to care about any of them. Heck, I don't think I can remember more than three names, and one of them is Coach.
Story itself was adequately paced, but included some plot details that went nowhere and would have been better left out.
