Highly Enjoyable Movie - Loved the Rowing,
This review is from: Backwards (DVD)
As a life-long rower (in competition and for fun), I found the film thoroughly enjoyable. It is so nice to finally see a film that focuses on the sport that I have loved for many years. To see its grace and beauty but also keep the realistic nature of the sport was wonderful. When watching the film in the theater, I found myself surrounded by a lot of high school crews who all laughed and cheered while watching the rowing scenes; scenes to which all rowers, current and former can relate and appreciate.
The movie provides an inspiring story line for young women on pursuing and achieving your dreams by applying some hard work. There is also a great lesson in there for us older women about sacrifice and choice for what is truly important later in life.
Overall, I was very pleased with the movie and can't wait to see it again.
