“My wife and I watched this at home on BluRay from our public library. We thought the Oak trees looked familiar, I found it was shot in the New Orleans area, probably one of the suburbs like Kenner or Metairie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is about a 13-yr-old girl who wants to be a top soccer player, she has goals but we arenu0026#39;t quite sure if she is willing to work as hard as she needs to. She is played very convincingly by Siena Agudong as Reagan Wills.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eShe idolized professional Alex Morgan, has lots of Morgan things on her wall, including a life-sized poster. Reagan falls and hits her head, when she wakes up the poster is blank but Morgan is standing in front of her. Thing is everyone else thinks she is crazy because only Reagan can see Morgan and speak to her.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis story has a bit of u0026quot;Bad News Bearsu0026quot; and u0026quot;The Big Greenu0026quot; in it. Reagan wants to be on the elite team that wins every year but she is dismissed by the coach, then finds a team of rejects that arenu0026#39;t very good, with a coach who doesnu0026#39;t know anything about soccer. But with the help of Morgan, and eventually Reaganu0026#39;s dad, their team of rejects turn into a contender for the title.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are a few scenes that play to the young teen rival cliche but in all it is a very nicely made movie with a good message – it is not enough to really want to be something, you also really have to work harder than everyone else.”
