Storyline

Teenager Reagan Willis (Agudong) has one dream -- to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan. When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she's certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan's poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes. Written by Official Press Synosis

Nice, clean and entertaining family movie about soccer.
2 October 2018 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

My wife and I watched this at home on BluRay from our public library. We thought the Oak trees looked familiar, I found it was shot in the New Orleans area, probably one of the suburbs like Kenner or Metairie.

It is about a 13-yr-old girl who wants to be a top soccer player, she has goals but we aren't quite sure if she is willing to work as hard as she needs to. She is played very convincingly by Siena Agudong as Reagan Wills.

She idolized professional Alex Morgan, has lots of Morgan things on her wall, including a life-sized poster. Reagan falls and hits her head, when she wakes up the poster is blank but Morgan is standing in front of her. Thing is everyone else thinks she is crazy because only Reagan can see Morgan and speak to her.

This story has a bit of "Bad News Bears" and "The Big Green" in it. Reagan wants to be on the elite team that wins every year but she is dismissed by the coach, then finds a team of rejects that aren't very good, with a coach who doesn't know anything about soccer. But with the help of Morgan, and eventually Reagan's dad, their team of rejects turn into a contender for the title.

There are a few scenes that play to the young teen rival cliche but in all it is a very nicely made movie with a good message - it is not enough to really want to be something, you also really have to work harder than everyone else.
