Sara (Leah Pipes) is a 15-year-old girl who lives for soccer. In fact, she's so good she may have a chance to join the U.S. National Team, making her the youngest player ever. While her Dad (Scott Patterson) wants nothing more, her Mom (Lisa Darr) feels Sara needs to consider other goals in life, like school work and friends (Lalaine and Drew Tyler Bell). Caught in the middle, the young athlete must decide what is Her Best Move.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Her Best Move...
The positives far outweigh any content concerns in this fine movie about a young female soccer prodigy. A frustrated girl dumps food on a boy’s head in the school cafeteria after she overhears him saying nasty things about her. In another scene, she deliberately drops a note she was passing to a friend in chemistry class into a bottle of acid after the teacher requests she hand it over to him. Sexual content consists of a few kisses between a boy and girl, a girl adjusting her bra after getting dressed, and a short shot of girls exercising in sports bras (perhaps a homage to soccer player Brandi Chastain, who is seen in this film). A few terms of deity are heard as expletives.
