“Wrestle” – Discussion on March 21
“Wrestle” is an intimate coming-of-age documentary about four members of a high school wrestling team at Huntsville’s J.O. Johnson High School, a longstanding entry on Alabama’s list of failing schools. As they fight their way towards the State Championship and the doors, they hope it will open, the young athletes must confront the complexities of class and race in the South. “Wrestle” is a closely observed, deeply affecting and impassioned depiction of growing up disadvantaged in America today. It has a 100% score (critic reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes with a 94% audience score.
