MARINETTE (2023) Tribeca 2023

The story soccer player Marinette Pichon who was so good that she played with the men's  team, before moving on to the Women's National Team and eventually going to America. 

One of the great discoveries of Tribeca, the film was an unexpected joy. I went into the film curious but more with a sense of obligation and came out of the film telling people they should see it.

To be certain the film hits many of the expected notes of a sports bio, but there is enough here, from the difference in the story, to the great performers to the physical filmmaking that it all comes together in order to becomes something special.

I really like this film a great deal and I can't wait to see it again.
