Editorial Reviews

Toe to Toe tells the story of the friendship and rivalry between lacrosse mates Tosha and Jesse, two senior girls at a competitive Washington, D.C. prep school. Tosha is an African American scholarship student from Anacostia, one of Washington`s poorest areas, while Jesse is a troubled and promiscuous white girl from the ritzy suburbs of Maryland. The two forge a close and genuine bond on the field, but their friendship unravels as they navigate through race and class related obstacles. When Jesse and Tosha discover that they've both been dating the same boy, the conflict becomes explosive. Toe to Toe is a powerful reminder of the transforming power of honesty and the way that those who test us often make us better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Toe to Toe Movie Review March 21, 2010
Format:DVD
This Sundance Film Festival 2009 selection was written, directed, and producted by Emily Abt. "Toe to Toe" is a coming-of-age story about two girls from different backgrounds who come into conflict over lacrosse and a boy. Louisa Krause plays Jesse, a white girl from a rich family who has every opportunity she wants but an absent mother is always away on business leading her to seek out attention in any way she can, usually the cheapest form using her body. Sonequa Martin plays Tosha, a black girl from the poorer side of town whose dream of going to Princeton pushes her every single day to work harder than everyone else. Without many role models around to emulate, Tosha takes her strength from her grandmother's tough love. Both girls being outsiders, they form an uneasy alliance put to the test constantly with competition on and off the field.

This movie sure doesn't go for subtlety in any way. The dialogue is very obvious and simple at times but the overall themes are still relevant and it becomes a very difficult movie to watch. What isn't said is more powerful than what is. The supporting cast is weak, but Krause and Martin rise above the material easily and add a great deal of substance to what otherwise may have been a surface value activisit piece.

Louisa Krause shows a great deal of bravery in Jesse's world to debase herself and climb to the utter pit of low self esteem and depression. With how far this movie was going, I feared the director would take the easy way out and write in a suicide attempt, but thankfully she was left to social suicide instead which is more difficult since Jesse still has to live with the consequences of her actions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for teen girls to watch!!!!!!!! February 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is quite graphic and I love that. My 15 and 17 yr old daughters needed to watch something without the fluff of some other teen movies that dont get into the psychology of why some girls do the things that they do. It truly explores the inner workings of what girls feel like and how they are affected by their environment, family life etc. Its an excellent, excellent film. Best one of its kind that I have seen in a long time and I have seen a ton of movies in my life :) If you have teenage girls OR BOYS please have them watch this. its entertaining without being boring or something they have seen already a million times.
