A charming Australian movie, shot in Wollongong.

The cultural cringe afflicting the plot is pretty hard to take.

Wholesome, feel-good story of misfit at soccer camp.

January 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Back of the Net is an entertaining, if unremarkable piece of pre-teen fluff enlivened by entertaining performances, moments of likable charm and a refreshing message.

July 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's ironic that Back of the Net features a protagonist who operates life through the application of textbook formulas, because she's stuck in a film that's chosen to do the same.

April 22, 2019 | Full Review…

An unrelentingly dull and joyless movie, Back of the Net blends trace elements of athleticism, academia and adolescent romance into a confection so thin and flavour-free, it dissolves immediately on impact.
