"You don't belong here; you're terrible at soccer, so why don't you just do everyone a favour and go home?" (Edie, Cory's key adversary lays it on the line).
With women's sport gaining the international profile it has long deserved, here is a simple, feel-good feature film to warm the hearts of cinema goers. Back Of The Net does not try to be anything it is not, it has a Disney feel hence U.S. teenage star Sofia Wylie of the Andi Mack (Disney Channel) series plays Cory an accidental soccer star in this clean-cut Australian production. Through an odd quirk of fate, science nerd Cory flies to Australia to study oceanic phenomena, but gets on the wrong transfer bus on exiting Sydney airport. Her new destiny is a soccer academy in the regions. Now's the time to let the fantasy that is Back Of The Net wash over you. Cory has no option but to grin and bear her new plight. Making friends and proving herself, learning key life lessons while taking risks and helping others along the way form the foundation for this narrative. And yes there is a winner take all game to climax our hero's journey. Sport loving juniors will love this 90 minute dramedy. 8GUMS.
