“Gracie” is a keeper

In the forthcoming second episode of the Major League Soccer Talk podcast, I interview actor/producer Andrew Shue, who is a former professional soccer player of some note about his new movie “Gracie.” The movie opened nationally on Friday and is a must see if you are a Soccer fan. Not only does the movie combine a true family story with the big screen but the soccer realism demonstrated in the film is a treat for lovers of the beautiful game. I’ll let Andrew Shue’s words describe the movie and the family aspect of the film when the podcast is released but for now please check out the movie’s website, http://www.graciemovie.com/ . I saw the film today and give it a big thumbs up.

    I wanted to like it, I really tried, but it didn't click with me. I didn't connect with it emotionally–I felt the brother's tragic death was glossed over, & I didn't feel the father “connecting” with his daughter even at the end. In terms of soccer reality, there are plenty of girls with skills to play on a men's team. Carly Schroeder clearly didn't have that touch or skill. The power that the story was true and my respect for the Shues kept in the theatre, though
