USA 2000, 98 minutes
Dir. Karyn Kusama
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Girl-centric, Independent, Youth

Topics: Sport.


Aroview: A teenage girl breaks out of her working-class rut by training as a boxer, an arena that presents sexual prejudice as her chief opponent.

Essentially a rites-of-passage drama with a sports theme, its modest means beat the odds to share the Grand Jury prize at Sundance 2000, carried largely on the muscular but feminine shoulders of Michelle Rodriguez, who displays certain potential as a heavyweight actress.
