Movie Info

The Anderson Monarchs is about an all-girls soccer team competing, living, and thriving in an at-risk urban neighborhood in Philadelphia. Nominated in 2008 by Sports Illustrated as "Sports Team" of the year, they were also hailed as "the future of American Soccer" in the London newspaper, The Guardian. The documentary follows two girls, Jlon, age 11, and Kahlaa, age 10, through their formative years from 2009 to 2011. As the girls grow as soccer players, they learn more about their own abilities. Bodies and minds become healthier, aspirations grow, and new dreams are formed. Barriers start to fall by the side as they become confident in school. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for The Anderson Monarchs

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

  • "The Anderson Monarchs" is the nicest of stories, but Martin fails to put into focus what is really at stake for the dedicated players or their devoted coach.

  • ...gossamer-delicate film about an inner-city Philadelphia girls' soccer team is replete with genuine uplift, but skimps on any narrative that would have brought its subjects into sharper relief.
