If you’re going to have an imaginary motivational coach, it’s hard to beat the disembodied voice of Geena Davis speaking through a poster for A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN. That is indeed the choice for the title character of this alternately abrasive and kinder-hearted comedy by Toronto writer-director Pat Mills, which tells the tale of a small-town teen who refuses to let her social-pariah status get in the way of her glitzier aspirations. While there’s much to relish about Michelle McLeod’s turn as the plucky Irene, the great Scott Thompson has just as much fun playing a tightly wound retirement-home supervisor. And yes, that is the voice of Davis you hear – there could be no substitute.
“There’s a warm-hearted tale here suffused with wit and a positive and life-affirming message about having the confidence to achieve your goals in the face of adversity.” –-Bruce Demara, The Toronto Star
