Drama: The stars and coach of a high school girls volleyball team must contend with the tragic death of their team captain as they try to repeat as state champions.
It's 2011 and Iowa City's West High Trojans girls volleyball team is hoping they'll get a shot at repeating as state champions, what with their coach, Kathy Bresnahan (HELEN HUNT), and star player, captain and all-important setter, Caroline 'Line' Found (DANIKA YAROSH), returning.

When not playfully wondering when her best friend, Kelley Fliehler (ERIN MORIARTY), might show some interest in a boy, Alex (BURKELY DUFFIELD), who's new to the neighborhood, she's trying to boost the spirits of her parents, surgeon Ernie (WILLIAM HURT) and hospitalized Ellyn (JILLIAN FARGEY), who are contending with the latter's terminal cancer diagnosis.

And then tragedy strikes when Caroline is killed while riding a moped home from a party, followed just days later by her mother's death. That not only devastates Ernie, but also Kathy, her team, and the entire community.

From that point on, Kathy tries to rally her team to come together and win for their late star, with much of the pressure falling on Kelley to take over her best friend's spot and leadership role on the team.

Those into volleyball or the true story on which this is based might be interested in seeing it.
For some thematic elements.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
