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.

Rise & Shine, The Jay Demerit Story is a testament to the tenacity and unfailing belief in a dream - a dream that no one else believed in until it became a reality.

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.

You don't have to be a soccer fan to come away from this movie with the mind set that you could accomplish all of your goals in life! This movie single-handedly makes you believe not only in yourself, but in the American dream by definition! For years the perception was that Americans know nothing about soccer as it pertains to the rest of the world; however all assumptions are thrown out thanks to this TRUE tale of a person that never gave up on their dream. Jay DeMerit seized every ounce of chance thrown his way to eventually start in all 4 of the United States World Cup games. This is an arena where only a handful of players over history can say they entered. The directors and cinematographer do an amazing job of bringing the story together (and were not given enough credit by the mainstream media) on an extremely limited budget to deliver an inspiring message. Buy this movie and tell a friend because the message needs to be spread, especially in todays ever changing times!

Rise & Shine is undoubtably one of the greatest films I have seen. It chronicles the unlikely path American Soccer Player, Jay Demerit took from zero to hero. Jay is essentially a REAL life Rocky Balboa.

The film is about soccer, but you don't have to be a soccer fan to enjoy this movie. It is family friendly, and truly is a GREAT film for anybody! Makes a great gift!
This film is perfect for anybody who needs inspiration to follow their dreams!

This movie represents everything a young futbol player wants coming from the USA. We all have the passion for the game but the culture holds us back. In this movie you will see what happens and what it takes to make it in the worlds biggest league and with the best futbol players in the world! Highly recommend! I use this in the school classes and the kids love it they are all soccer players!

Rise & Shine, The Jay Demerit Story is a testament to the tenacity and unfailing belief in a dream - a dream that no one else believed in until it became a reality. Whether you're a soccer fan or not, you can't help but be moved and inspired by this film. It's message speaks to young people to dream big -- REALLY BIG -- and never doubt yourself. It's a reminder to those who have put their dreams on hold to pursue other things to not forget where they've set those dreams down. This is a film to have in your collection and watch over and over.
