A quirky and spirited sports film about three driven teenage athletes attempting to go for the Olympic gold. Their sport? The perpetually popular but underappreciated game of competitive ping pong. Top Spin documents the unusual challenges of coming of age in a niche sport, while having to balance expectations from school, family and friends. Struggling with SATs and college applications, it’s not all a dream when the ordinary pressures of adolescence begin to affect the mental and emotional concentration required to play this intense sport. -CM
