Her dream is to row in the Olympics. And she's come so close...
BACKWARDS tells the story of Abi Brooks, a fiercely competitive rower, who fails to make the Olympic boat for a second time and reluctantly takes a job coaching rowers at a high school where her boss happens to be her ex-boyfriend. When given a chance to rejoin the Olympic team, Abi confronts the personal sacrifices and professional choices that impact the world of athletes with Olympic ambitions.
Great film for families, especially daughters (have no idea why it got a PG!). But its not an icky family film. The acting is terrific, the writing is sharp and the ending unexpected. Highly recommended--great girl power movie!
