Synopsis

From the director of Bigger Stronger Faster comes an intense look at overbearing parents in sports. The film asks the question “Do we want what’s best for our children? Or do we just want them to be the best?” Parts of this film were used in the premier of Peter Berg’s HBO series State of Play.

What are people saying?

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Trophy Kids

    While a great documentary for putting a face to the stereotype of an abusive/helicopter parent, it does admittedly shortchange its core subjects by never or rarely giving the kids a chance to speak for themselves and discuss their feelings behind their parents' actions. Worth watching, however, for the way it makes you, the viewer, stressed and scared yourself.
