GracieThe movie Gracie is out in theaters this weekend. Go see it! The movie is based on true events and is about a girl in a soccer obsessed family who faces the tragic loss of her brother and wants to play soccer with the boys, before soccer was a girls sport, too. She faces an uphill battle in 1978 in helping to pave the way for more competitive sports opportunities for girls.

Carly Schroeder plays Gracie and Elizabeth Shue, whose family inspired the movie, plays her mother.

Visit the Gracie web site to see trailers, learn more about the story, download wallpapers and send e-cards.

It’s great to see another positive movie about girls and sports. Go Gracie Go!!

Hi Char,

My wife and I saw Gracie, thinking it would be a good idea to see it before we let our 7-year old see it (who’s in her second year of soccer).

I’m glad we did.

It was a good movie, but it was pretty rough – there were some “mature” dating scenes (a bit beyond that, but I’m not sure how to say it), and Gracie got smacked around on the pitch quite a bit.

Good story overall, but we’re going to wait to let our daughter see it; she gets intimidated by roughness in games, and it might scare her a bit. Older/other kids may not have a problem, of course…


Adam – thanks for taking the time to share your insights! Chances are, I will wait until I let my girls watch it, too.

You’re welcome… I did just see “Dare to Dream”, though — it’s the documentary about the US Women’s soccer team.

It’s great; lots of interviews with the players (Mia Hamm, Julie Fowdy, the whole “original” bunch, including a couple of spots by current star Abby Wambach), plenty of footage of their games, the ups and downs of World Cup play and the Olympics…

I haven’t had the chance to show my daughter, yet, but I think she’ll love it.
