The Hopeful

The Hopeful (2011)

“This isn’t how I envisioned it.”

Sunday Single Sentence Review:

Lacking a cohesive narrative, and featuring a subject, (teen quarterback Cody Keith, the son of affluent, loving, but obsessive North Carolina stage sports-parents,) who isn’t quite as sympathetic as director Brendan Kirsch seems to think he is, The Hopeful fails to justify its own existence, and devolves into essentially nothing but an extended high school football highlight reel.
