    BACKWARDS is  a great film - so much more than a sports film or romantic comedy.
    Its a really wonderful exploration of following a dream and what happens when it doesn't look just the way you imagined.
    I loved this film so much, from the leads  to the supporting roles ( Alysia Reiner is hysterical in a cameo as Sarah Megan Thomas'  best friend)
     Its a great film to watch with your kids (aged 7-37)  and to talk about life, dreams and happiness.
    I couldn't recommend it more.

    Charming film for the entire family

    Backwards is a charming, upbeat story with heart and substance. Whether you're a sports aficionado, a fan of romantic comedy or a devotee of James Van Der Beek, you'll find something to love. I found it so refreshing to see such a solid female cast - led by the talented Sarah Megan Thomas in her big screen debut. ¿¿Backwards is "Bend it Like Beckham" for rowing. It brings excitement and dramatic tension to the often unappreciated rigors of this sport. After watching the exquisitely filmed racing scenes I now have a much deeper appreciation for the passion and commitment rowing inspires for so many young athletes. Coming so soon after the Olympics, this film reminds us of the sacrifices behind athletic accomplishment and the rewards of true sportsmanship.¿¿The sports theme is only one of several draws. Abi and Geoff (Thomas and Van Der Beek) have great charisma in the movie. The coaching scenes between Abi and "her girls" bring you back to high school and the relationships there formed. Some of the best scenes put in stark relief how competition can strain even the strongest of friendships - and how teamwork can overcome even major setbacks. Do see this movie!
