Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story

Opens Thursday, Nov 3, 2011 Synopsis: A gifted American soccer player gets the once-in-a-lifetime chance to play professionally in Europe, gradually working his way up to the English Premier League though nothing more than hard work, and total dedication. Fresh out of college and ready to take the world of soccer by story, Jay DeMerit failed to make the professional leagues in the U.S., and quickly set his sights on Europe. There, soccer is just as big as the NFL or college football in America, and the fans are known to be fiercely passionate. At the time he went to Europe to pursue his dream DeMerit was just 21, and lived a sparse existence while training constantly. In this documentary, we watch as DeMerit starts out scoring goals in Sunday park leagues, and steadily advances through the ranks. Eventually, he achieves his coveted goal of playing in the English Premier League, where he would become a starting player in the 2010 World Cup. Interviews with various soccer players from both sides of the pond help to tell DeMerit's incredible tale of perseverance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jay DeMerit Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
