Overview

Inspired by the real-life events that followed the untimely 1988 death of William Shue brother of cast members Elisabeth and Andrew Shue and executive producer John Shue the feel-good sports drama Gracie unfolds in 1978 New Jersey. 15-year-old Gracie Bowen newcomer Carly Schroeder is still reeling from the passing of her brother Johnny Jesse Lee Soffer, a star player on the high-school soccer team. When Gracie defies nearly everyone's wishes by vowing to replace Johnny under the aegis of cantankerous Coach Colasanti John Doman, it irritates her parents Elisabeth Shue, Dermot Mulroney -- who encourage her to stick to activities better-suited to her gender -- and her best friend, Jena Julia Garro, who warns her that athletic women are often considered "lesbos." The young woman persists, however, and wins the hearts of her most strident detractors, surmounting one obstacle after another and racing toward certain victory. Karen Janszen and Lisa Marie Petersen co-scripted; Davis Guggenheim An Inconvenient Truth directs, lacing the soundtrack with pop standards from that era, with Aretha Franklin's "Rock Steady" used as Gracie's training anthem. Dina Goldman created the film's meticulous 1970s production design.

    This is a inspirational movie not just for girls but also for the mothers that love them.

    My daughter and I saw this on TV one day and I knew I had to add it to our collection. This movie inspires girls to go for their dreams no matter what others might think. But more importantly, it inspired me as a mother to support my daughter's dream.

    A reviewer

    Prior reviews have given a good synopsis of this film, so I will not repeat the plot. As the father of a daughter, I am always looking for the kind of film that matter-of-factly informs girls that, through desire and plain hard work, you can achieve your goals. That is a common, obvious message, but ask yourself how many movies are delivering that message to girls without also referring, whether overtly or by implication, to appearance and sexuality. The universe of those films is tiny. Well, finally, here is one!! Unfortunately, this movie was marketed poorly and did not do well at the box office. That does not mean, however, that it should die on the vine as a dvd. If you think a simple positive message of grit and determination for girls is worthy of wide distribution, then its going to take word of mouth to do it, because clearly the studios don't care. Spread the word about Gracie!!
