Bru: The Underdog

Bite of the bottom lip, down-trodden gaze to camera, hair whipped across cheek, lights, camera, action on…

Emily Bartle, the underdog.

Playerlayer’s heart-wrenching tale of Miss Bartle’s battle to reach the top of her game, presents the lucky viewer with a cinematic feast of Jack-Willsian sun-spots, bad ass silhouettes, slow-motion and intense immersion, all with a home movie-esque appeal.  Under masterful direction and artful cinematography, Bartle shines (sometimes quite literally) in the role of the rejected but determined lax player head-to-toe in her freshly-laundered (courtesy of Fairy non-bio) Playerlayer stash.  Who wouldn’t want to emulate that sexy collar-up jacket, that fly strip, that woebegone voice, those cheekbones?  Not to mention those lax tekkers…

Momentarily transported, I emerged from my one minute and eleven second journey with Miss Bartle wide-eyed, inspired and surrounded with Post-war poetry, I had almost forgotten where I was.  It seems that if you walk the walk, talk the talk, cradle the stick and wear The Kit (I am of course referring to Playerlayer) you too can join team, work hard, earn respect, belong.

A film that is truly unmissable.
