Fast Girls

A British drama we've covered quite a bit on this blog, is coming to DVD and Digital Download next month...

Details below, including extra features, follows via press release below:

CHATSWORTH, CA – In the spirit of great sport films including Great Britain's Bend It Like Beckham and the United States' Saturday Night Lights, Image Entertainment, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Fast Girls, a thrilling and inspiring story of determination, commitment and, ultimately, personal achievement in the world of womens’ competitive sports. From the acclaimed producer of The Iron Lady and The History Boys, Fast Girls brings viewers into the intimate training zone of women's track and field where crossing the finish line is only half the battle. Fast Girls will be available on DVD and digital download on February 26th, 2013 at an SRP of $27.97. Pre-order date is January 29th.

A poor kid from a bad neighborhood, Shania (Lenora Crichlow, “Being Human”) faces an uphill battle in life to begin with, but her raw talent and personal drive might prove to be her salvation. When she's offered a dream-come-true chance to become a member of the National Women's Relay Team, Shania will be forced to set aside her hard-fought pride, her simmering rivalry with Golden Girl Lisa (Lily James, “Downton Abbey”, “Secret Diary of a Call Girl”), and learn how to be part of a team. With their collective eyes sharply focused on the World Championships, this group of fiercely competitive female athletes will need to coalesce if they're going to cross the finish line as champions!

Stylist magazine calls Fast Girls "the most inspiring film of the year," while Company magazine promises, "If you liked Bend It Like Beckham, you'll love this!" And Fast Girls will make its US exhibition debut at the 3rd Annual Athena Film Festival, which celebrates women's leadership in real life and the fictional world, being held next month at Barnard College in New York City.

Bonus features include six featurettes:

Cast Training

The Relay

Costume Design

Night Shoot
