LFG

Summary:

This documentary from Oscar winners Andrea Nix Fine and Sean Fine covers the U.S. women’s national soccer team’s fight for equal pay with the governing body U.S. Soccer. It’s told by those in the center of the fight, star athletes Megan Rapinoe, Jessica McDonald, Becky Sauerbrunn, Kelley O’Hara, Sam Mewis, among others. The U.S. women’s team has won four World Cups in the past 20 years, while the men’s team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. They deserve more. This rousing documentary serves to make you want to join the fight, which is bigger than just a soccer team. It’s about equality. As Megan Rapinoe says in the trailer, “If they win, no one wins. If we win, everyone wins.”
