It's 10 years later, and Leo (Danny Mousetis) and his father are still tight, although they don't seem to have a deep relationship outside of wrestling. It's very unnerving to see Coach Leone wear Oklahoma T-Shirts, manipulating his son into believing that he really wants to attend the University of Oklahoma. Sure, his intentions are not necessarily bad. It's obvious that he loves his son, and a college education is an absolute necessity these days; but when you see Leo's nose bleed in the middle of a conversation, and later, him throwing up after dinner, then you know something is wrong.
Leo begins dating a girl named Shaw (Kelly Vint), who doesn't fit the "cheerleader" mold that most athletes go after. They have a realistic chemistry that develops over the course of the movie. With her help, Leo is able to realize that he has to make a choice between living his own life, or letting his father continue to live vicariously through him.
"Reversal" is a unique movie, especially because of the fact that it touts a cast of relative unknowns. "Reversal" is more than just the ins and outs of amateur wrestling. It's about the relationship between fathers and sons, husbands and wives; it's about taking control of your life; it's about sacrifice; and it's about accomplishing the goals you have set for yourself.
