Critic Reviews for Toe to Toe
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.
Audience Reviews for Toe to Toe
Excellent coming of age of movie. I feel about twenty five years too old watching this. LOL. But I enjoyed it.
When reading the synopsis of this movie, I assumed it was going to be a rehashing of recent movies with a hard working black student trying to fit in, and over privileged white student who squanders their opportunities, how they become friends and learn about each other...and on the surface it kinda is that. But after watching the movie it goes much deeper into the spirits that drive these two girls to do what they do. True Tosha is a hardworking scholarship student at a prep school, but she is also pushed and driven by an overbearing grandmother, who treats her other siblings like trash. And Jessie is a rich kid, but she is essentially she's a latch key kid, because her mother is always overseas. There are times in this movie when you smile, cringe, and cheer... and those are usually good ingredients to a good movie.
krause and martin carried film like lacrosse ball in their lacrosse stx. dont be fooled by who is poor, who is wealthy, who has it all and who doesnt. loved the story.
