I'm excited about this one.


Looking forward to it


Piggy backing on CareyCarey, there's sizzle in the trailer between being a solo outsider, romance, inner racial fighting, some bonding time. All quite ho-hum for sports movies but it all looks very good; slick almost. But I wonder if the whole body image will play out or if it's just inscribed in the story. On another note, nothing like seeing healthy, athletic women in movement.


I don't know much about Noel Clarke, but I can speak on female Track & Field. My daughter ran for the University of Kentucky and I was a track & field coach. This film seems to incorporate all the dynamics of being a female in a very intense sport. I.e. long and lonely hours of practice, politics, the haves & the have nots, worrying about maintaining their feminine identity "body & mind" (many dudes are intimidated by "strong" women), social life, racial issues, etc. Anyway, it's appropriate that this film is in the UK. As a spectator sport, Track & Field is dying in the USA.

Uh, the USA is not the team to beat: Jamaica is.


Female Track & Field ….I'm in !
