Movie Info

Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story is the true story of a young American's impossible journey - a journey never experienced or heard of in the soccer world. 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 2010 World Cup. -- (C) Offiical Sitemore

Audience Reviews for Rise And Shine: The Jay Demerit Story

An intriguing story of will and desire to overcome the odds but it lacked some much needed professional help. Jay Demerit is a great soccer player and his story is one that is sure to inspire soccer fans and non-soccer fans alike but the amateur mistakes made in this documentary are really unforgivable. From jump cuts, slowly zooming out to fix shots, and lousy editing the mistakes just piled up. The writing could have been stronger as well but even with all the mistakes the story of an American soccer hero like Jay is one that should be seen and heard. Jay is a favorite of mine and a player that I hold high praise for.
