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.
A demented, amateurish after school special, Toe to Toe is only useful as a means to observe a first-rate actress in the making. The rest is pure rubbish, delivered with all the subtlety of an air horn.
Toe to Toe features two exceptionally layered performances at its center, as well as ideas that don't sort themselves out in neat and easily summarized fashion.
Hell hath no fury like a sister scorned, especially for a wigger!
Winds up biting off more urban high school malaise than we can swallow without gagging.
One of the better coming of age dramas to emerge from the Sundance Film Festival since thirteen
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.
