THE CRASH REEL seamlessly combines twenty years of stunning action footage with new specially-shot verité footage and interviews as it follows U.S. champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce and exposes the irresistible but potentially fatal appeal of

extreme sports.

An escalating rivalry between Kevin and his nemesis Shaun White in the run-up to the 2010 Olympics leaves Shaun on top of the Olympic podium and Kevin in a coma following a training accident in Park City, Utah. Kevin's tight-knit Vermont family flies

to his side and helps him rebuild his life as a brain injury survivor. But when he insists he wants to return to the sport he still loves, his family intervenes with his eloquent brother David speaking for all of them when he says, “I just don’t want you to die.”  Kevin’s doctors caution him that even a small blow to the head could be enough to kill him. Will Kevin defy them and insist on pursuing his passion? With his now impaired skills, what other options does he have? How much risk is too much?

    I thought it was great, but at times the soundtrack was too loud, therefore 4 stars.

    An invitation: I will be singing with Women in Harmony next weekend at Woodfords Congregational Church--7 pm on Saturday, 4 pm on Sunday (25th and 26th) . The theme is our relationship with earth and each other, but each song uses a different musical style--American Indian, gospel, calypso and would you believe a song about compost to a tango beat? Tickets at the door are $15, $10 for students and seniors, free under age 12. Hope you can come, and please share with others.
