In the Game

A warm and often heart-tugging look at four years in the life of a girls’ soccer team at Chicago’s inner city Kelly High School in the primarily Hispanic Brighton Park neighborhood, the Kartemquin Films-produced IN THE GAME is an intimate study in sisterhood and hope in the face of adversity. Award-winning director Finitzo (5 GIRLS, TERRA INCOGNITA) underlines the solid sense of family that young players discover in the team setting, as rocky home lives, poverty, and the political forces that dictate slashes to the school’s budget conspire to limit their prospects for a bright future.
