It is never easy for someone to change high-schools and Cory has an even tougher time when he moves in to a new foster home after the death of his mother. Cory tries out for the football team and winds up befriending Tyler, their star quarterback. As he tries to fit into his new surroundings, he winds up being confronted and bullied by some of the team’s hottest players.
Cory is soft spoken but stands up for his rights with dignity. He also becomes friends with Tyler’s kid sister Lucy who shares his love for classic adventure novels. She has a special video camera that plays a film roll of its own, providing her with mystical insights into people and events in her life.
This film has many life lessons for teens about bullying, building trusted friendships, and the benefits of telling the truth even in difficult circumstances. One of the most memorable lines from the film is, “If not for others, what am I?” and “If not now, when?”
Dove is pleased to award this movie our “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
