This documentary showcases the epic fifteen-year rivalry between snowboarding legends Shaun White and Kevin Pearce, childhood friends who became Olympians. Pearce?s near-fatal crash on a Park City half-pipe led to intensive rehabilitation, and questions about his unflagging desire to return to the sport. His determination is inspiring, even as loved ones want to protect his safety. This is a film of surprising intimacy, capturing both the thrill of ambition and the love of a closely knit family.
This compassionate account of the thrills and risks of extreme sports makes it required viewing for both aspirants and enthusiasts. - Hollywood Reporter
