Storyline

Thorvald's a typical high school kid finding his way, and he's pretty impressed with his classmate, Ida, who seems to have already found her's. Taking a cue from Ida's energetic campaign to ban a competing school's football team, the Redskins, until they change their oppressive name - Thorvald initiates an effort to change their own school's mascot, the Viking, to something less offensive to Scandinavians. And he enlists the assistance of an elusive community organizer, a mischievously alert neighborhood kid and, of course, Ida - against the resistance of his parents, his classmates, and pretty much everyone else in town, including Ida's giant boyfriend, T-Bone, the Captain of the Vikings football team. It's a bit of a bumpy path along the way, and Thorvald and Ida grow close trying to sort it all out.

Thought provoking comedy.
29 December 2018 | by tenksoundSee all my reviews

This is well worth a watch. It deals cleverly with issues of racism and prejudice.
