Bracingly unsentimental and transcendently moving at the same time.

It's a fascinating puzzle: a film that is simultaneously an indictment of the toxic legacy of cultural imperialism and a weepie that employs the familiar tropes of Hollywood, one of the biggest machines of cultural imperialism on the planet.

The "white saviour" approach is awkward at best. It opens with a trigger-warning, signaling lack of confidence in the material (and the audience, too).

The film hosts a plethora of well-constructed young characters with genuine ambition and an authenticity that breaks and warms the heart all at once.

A complete triumph from casting and location filming to its refusal to simplify the harshness of the life it explores.

The fearless and inspiring The Grizzlies gives Canadian film the great sports drama that has long eluded it.
