Audience Reviews for Edge of America
I am a sucker for this kind of movie. Root for the underdogs! This is a chick-flick Independent sports movie centered around an Indian American highschool girls basketball team. Heartwarming, good intentioned filmmaking meant for lightheated enjoyment...
(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] A good inspirational film with some very good acting from the entire cast.
A real heart-warming tale of a black man as a fish-out-of-water on an Indian reservation. Terrific cast, using the local talent. Exotically beautiful Irene Bedard played the assistant coach, Annie Shorty with real fire. Beautiful scenery and a story about personal growth, the drive for excellence, and finding one's place in the world. In the midst of staggering poverty and crippling despair, Coach Williams (James McDaniel) was able to inspire a ragtag girls basketball team to achieve greatness. Tender moments brought tears and these were liberally sprinkled with laugh out loud moments. Coach had some growing up to do and this bunch of ladies were up to the task. Heck, it made me want to be a Lady Warrior!
