Gracie

Inspired by one family's real story


Gracie
Based on a true story from actress Elizabeth Shue, who plays the mom, this is the tale of a talented young girl's fight to join a boys soccer team. Her elder brother was the star of the team, until his unfortunate demise. Our heroine also had a knack for soccer, and desperately wanted to join the team, but hardly anyone else thought it was a good idea. With her mom's suport, she continued to try, eventually winning enough support to earn a place. However not all the boys took to the idea, and she had to earn their respect with her skill as well.

What the Critics say

Cape Times
Lael Loewenstein quote iconEarnest, well-acted drama

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconGracie is painless enough and, at times, even enjoyable. But it suffers from an overriding feeling that this would be better positioned as a made-for-TV feature.

ScreenIt
quote iconThe pic might have seemed better if so many other similar films hadn't already preceded it, but with the likes of Bend It Like Beckham also on the cinematic playing field, this one sort of disappears into the crowd.
