The female Hoop Dreams.
That’s the quickest way to describe this powerful doc, but it can more than stand on its own merits.
Following the Seattle-based Roosevelt High School girls basketball squad over the course of six years, it has everything filmmakers want.
A scrappy coach with unconventional ways, who shakes everyone up.
A star player chasing athletic success while dealing with real-world issues.
And, of course, a long-gestating bid for state title glory.
Like the other basketball film referenced above, this will endure as a bittersweet ode to the extreme highs and lows to be found in prep sports.
