Goal! The Dream Begins
Source: Catholic News Service
Familiar but satisfying sports drama about an undocumented Mexican migrant (Kuno Becker) who is given an opportunity to escape his father's (Tony Plana) hardscrabble fate and fulfill his dream of playing professional soccer when a former British scout (Stephen Dillane) visiting Los Angeles offers him a tryout with a top-tier English soccer team. Directed by Danny Cannon, the film's feel-good underdog theme coupled with Becker's appealing performance scores, despite a formulaic script, underdeveloped characters and an overlong length. A few crude expressions, suggested drunkenness and carousing, implied sexual situations and some sports roughness, limiting its appropriateness to older adolescents and up. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
