The class-clashing plot may be unoriginal, but this sporting take on a familiar theme is slickly done. Cannily released just weeks before the London Olympics, the film centres on the spiky relationship between two members of an all-girl British sprint relay team in training for the athletics World Championships. Shania (Lenora Crichlow, from TV's
) is sassy and streetwise. Lisa (Lily James) is middle class and snobby, and desperate not to disappoint her pushy dad (Rupert Graves), a former Olympic gold medallist. The girls' fighting and feuding threatens to knock the whole team's preparations off-track, but there are no medals for guessing the eventual outcome.
is equal parts cheese, corn and cliché, but it's great fun. Even the sports scenes, often a problem in this kind of film, more than pass muster.
A fierce rivalry develops between a talented working class sprinter and the wealthy daughter of a former Olympic medal-winner as they compete on the track. They are forced to settle their differences and work together when they are recruited for the same relay team. Drama, with Lenora Crichlow, Lily James, Rupert Graves and Noel Clarke, who also co-wrote the script.
