Ever since Hopper was a child, he has dreamed of becoming a major-league pitcher. Relentlessly pushed and punished by his abusive father, he's on the verge of becoming one of the game's most promising players when he unexpectedly breaks down on the mound. Now Hopper's only hope for a future lies with an unorthodox sports therapist who urges him to piece together the past and confront the man who is both bully and family.

Ethan Hawke is a fine actor..he seems to choose some very diversified films to be part of, perhaps its his way of growing as an actor?. This film is extremely slow, and NOT what you may think it is. Its a very deep personal story of depression and dealing with it, so dont expect a sports story. I can't really recommend it on my viewing as it did not hold my attention.

Is true, the acting, maybe due to an inexperienced director or a cut budget, stress on the... whatever, HOWEVER, has its good points. One scene is almost too well done- well acted that is, but it's verbal bullying and putdowns bordering on violence that goes on and on and on. How to survive that kind of stuff is what this is about.

Phenomenally terrible !! Some pretty good acting..at times, by the three main characters...but even the "adequate" acting performances, and "stars" don't give this film ANY reason to be viewed !!

If you liked Whiplash (Miles Teller and JK Simmons), you'll like this also: a father and son sad, disturbing, well-acted drama. Kudos to Ethan Hawke and Johnny Simmons.
