And it's okay. A bit formulaic, with the formula coming from any number of sports movies. The twist, of course, is that the sport is debating. I'll give it credit for making competitive debate exciting. In fact, I could've done with more debating and less love triangle and/or union organizing (side stories that just don't go anywhere).
And that's that. Meanwhile, in film festival news, the Berlin and Beyond Festival starts Thursday at the Castro.
