Encouraged by her uncle, a young girl pursues a goal to be a quarterback in the Pop Warner Football League in The Longshots. Bliss’s mother isn’t the only mom who has her teen’s life planned out: in Ice Princess, a mother’s academic goals for her daughter are threatened when the girl wants to take up figure skating. Drew Barrymore gives a powerful performance as a 15-year-old girl whose life is turned upside down when she becomes pregnant after Riding In Cars With Boys.

Of Special Note:

This movie is the directorial début for Drew Barrymore, who can be seen as a child in E.T The Extra-terrestrial. Her adult acting career includes movies like Ever After and Charlie’s Angles. Ellen Page caught the attention of the acting world in the title role of Juno.
