Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...the movie's theatrical origins remain obvious throughout, both in the dialogue and direction."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A hard-hitting, brooding drama about sports that lances the American myth of competition and winning."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"It's hard to say that the picture is bad, just that it's dry as tinder without a spark to ignite it."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Incredible performances highlight this brittle, emotional saga of how significant moments in life can have considerable impact later."
‑ Diana Saenger, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
