Gracie is about a girl that is bound and determined to make her dream of playing soccer come true. She accomplishes this goal through sheer determination, and by never losing sight of her dream. The movie is based on a true story, and some events are sobering, yet very realistic in both scope and performance. Our entire family felt inspired and emotionally charged by the end of the show. We highly recommend viewing this movie for anyone with young athletes in their family. We attended a prescreening of the movie in Salt Lake City. We enjoyed the movie so much that we'll probably see it again.

Last night I went to the advanced screening in San Francisco with my 2 friends. (We got to to meet the actors and actresses afterwards :]) But anyways, it was an outstanding movie. I went into it thinking, ehh its just another one of those feel-good/inspirational movies, but it wasn't. I thought the acting was very good and the story line kept you on the edge of your seat, squeezing your friends hand at certain parts. haha Overall, way better than I thought it would be and I definitely recommend it!

I left the movie just after the make-out session in the car because of the two 11 year old boys I had with me. "Too much kissing" for them. I understand the real soccer playing got going after that. Too bad it took so long to get there. I understand the whole story came together after that and my daughter and her soccer team enjoyed it. I will think twice before taking my kids to a PG-13 movie again. It was more than I wanted them to see.

I took my 2 girls (12 and 10) and my son (5) to see this movie, and I wish I wouldn't have taken the kids. It was a great movie, but there were a few scenes that aren't for the kids. Gracie goes through normal high school stuff for a kid rebelling in the time period (taking mom's car for a spin, chasing college guys, making out, etc.) It's not all that bad, but for the little ones it gets into a few areas I would prefer my kids not experience just yet.

Best movie with the truest message i've seen in a long time. Carly Schroeder truly came out and proved herself as an actress. The script, although lacking in a few areas, touched the heart and moved me in an almost strange way. I laughed, cried, cringed, and cheered...and then played some soccer after. AN AMAZING MOVIE AND A MUST SEE
