Story


Set in 1978 and inspired by real life events in the Shue family, "Gracie" is the story of a sixteen year-old girl who, after a family tragedy changed her life, fought for and won the right for girls everywhere to play competitive team soccer.

Living in South Orange New Jersey, 15 year old Gracie Bowen (Carly Schroeder) is the only girl in a family of three brothers. Their family life revolves almost entirely around soccer: her father (Dermot Mulroney) and brothers are obsessed with the sport, practicing in the backyard’s makeshift field every day from morning ‘til night. Tragedy unexpectedly strikes when Gracie’s older brother Johnny (Jesse Lee Soffer), star of the high school varsity soccer team and Gracie’s only protector, is killed in a car accident. Struggling with grief over her family’s loss, Gracie decides to fill the void left on her brother’s team by petitioning the school board to allow her to play on the boy’s high school varsity soccer team in his place.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Alternately too derivative to stand out and too personal to translate well, its best intentions miss the mark more often than not..”
by Stan Urankar [Sun Newspapers]
“..a vanity project that will appeal mostly to middle-school soccer teams..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..won't win any medals for originality, but it scores a goal for girl power..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
