Review Date

This is an absolutely fantastic family friendly movie for lovers and future-lovers of soccer. It traces the growth of one of the greatest players of all times. Pele shook the soccer world and played a critical role in bringing soccer to America. This movie does a beautiful job of showing him growing up in Brazil and finding his way to the highest levels of soccer. It has a very cool cameo by Pele himself. This is a movie that is more about a young man coming of age and over coming challenges than purely a soccer movie. With that said, it has a very interesting perspective on the impact of culture on a team's style of soccer.
