Editorial Reviews

Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story is the true story of a young American's impossible journey. After college, Jay's dream of playing pro soccer in Europe seemed unreachable. Sleeping in an attic, painting houses and eating beans and toast to survive, Jay took the most unlikely route to the top. After not making the professional leagues in the U.S., Jay left for Europe at the age of 21 without any professional experience - only a passport, $1800 and a backpack full of dreams. The film documents Jay's journey from the bottom - playing in Sunday park leagues and lower level division London clubs earning 40 pounds a week - to playing in the English Premier League - to starting in the world's greatest sports stage - the 2010 World Cup. The Jay DeMerit Story is a story of perseverance, hard work and a relentless belief in a dream...it is a story that needs to be told.

This movie is about a dream and what can be accomplished through perseverance. When you finish watching this movie pay attention to the credits and the thanks. The financing for this movie was made possible not by some deep pockets investment bank, but by 1937 individual soccer fans, MLS supporters, and folks from around the world who knew of Jay and were inspired by his story and contributed over $230,000 to get this movie produced. 105 of these backers pledged between $250 and $10,000 and are thanked in the credits.

I was lucky enough to see this film in theaters - and was blown away. The story touches on so many different emotions, it's hard to not be moved by Jay DeMerit's tenacity. The story of Jay's rise from the soccer fields of Green Bay, Wisconsin to the biggest stage on Earth, at the World Cup was incredible. The movie itself was beautifully directed. This is a must watch not just for soccer fans, but for all sports fans, and those looking for inspiration in life.

I am a big supporter of the USMNT, and I also like my share of documentaries. This movie combined two things I really enjoy and it delivered. This is a great doc about a great player in Jay DeMerit. I have shown it to people who are not fans of soccer, yet they thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Highly recommend this doc.
