Reviews about RISE & SHINE: THE JAY DEMERIT STORY
Terrific Story! Inspiring! A must watch for all kids!
Jay DeMerit's story is captured here very entertaining just a great trip thru the lower levels of English football. A must watch for a U.S. Soccer fan!!!
Very well done. If you're a soccer (football) fan, this will make you feel good. Hard work and a positive attitude. The American way!!!
inspirational and miraculous soccer story. motivation for any soccer fan or player. go usa ! still hard to believe the path
Everything was amazing, that movie was a inspriation to everyone who wants to be a pro soccer player like me. I really got inspired to be once a great soccer player in europe.
I am a big supporter of the USMNT, and I also like my share of documentaries. This movie combined two things I really enjoy and it delivered. This is a great doc about a great player in Jay DeMerit. I have shown it to people who are not fans of soccer, yet they thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Highly recommend this doc.
This movie is about a dream and what can be accomplished through perseverance. When you finish watching this movie pay attention to the credits and the thanks. The financing for this movie was made possible not by some deep pockets investment bank, but by 1937 individual soccer fans, MLS supporters, and folks from around the world who knew of Jay and were inspired by his story and contributed over $230,000 to get this movie produced. 105 of these backers pledged between $250 and $10,000 and are thanked in the credits.
I was lucky enough to see this film in theaters - and was blown away. The story touches on so many different emotions, it's hard to not be moved by Jay DeMerit's tenacity. The story of Jay's rise from the soccer fields of Green Bay, Wisconsin to the biggest stage on Earth, at the World Cup was incredible. The movie itself was beautifully directed. This is a must watch not just for soccer fans, but for all sports fans, and those looking for inspiration in life.
