Inspirational Movie
22 September 2012 | by JendciSee all my reviews

Excellent movie and great timing after the Olympics! I was excited to see a movie focusing on woman's sports for a change! Its great to send this message to little girls to get involved in sports and know they can be leaders. As everyone goes through a crossroads in their lives, I thought the movie portrayed a real life look at the decision making process in that and ultimately, trying to find happiness. The acting was great! I thought the rowing scenes were beautiful. What a great setting for a movie! I listened to a few interviews with the actors and was impressed to hear more about rowing and how difficult of a sport that it is to pick up. This movie is for anyone looking for a feel-good inspirational movie! I am happy to recommend this movie as it is appropriate for all audiences and can especially be inspiring to women and children. Most important is the lesson to enjoy the journey.
