Fiercely determined to succeed and build a brighter future outside of Anacostia, Tosha (Sonequa Martin) is an African-American scholarship student from one of Washington's poorest neighborhoods. Perhaps Tosha's polar

Toe to Toe deserves credit for delving into the rich dynamics of interracial friendship and teenaged social tectonics. And it features some terrific acting.

For good stretches, Toe to Toe has an engaging frankness about youthful liberty as both a weighty armor and a dangerously alluring escape hatch.

What happens when a movie's lead actors are better than their material? You get something like Toe to Toe.

An unusually honest, compassionate and challenging view of contemporary youth, neither sugarcoated nor prurient.

Krause and Martin consistently rise above the material; we'll hopefully see more of them under better, less Larry Clark-like circumstances.

Spreading social awareness is a valuable pursuit, naturally, but when filmmakers take it upon themselves to don the cape of an activist hero while constantly reminding audiences of their nobility, the message feels cheap.

Audience Reviews for Toe to Toe

Well-acted drama centered on interracial relationships and economic statuses between two vastly different worlds that connect demonstrating how small it is after all. A great film from the Sundance Film Festival.
