About The Wolves
THE WOLVES is an unconventional exploration of the pitfalls of friendship and coming maturity, as seen through the struggles of a girls’ athletic team. In this “incandescent portrait of an indoor soccer team” (The New York Times), nine teenage girls stretch, train, and argue about everything from the meaningful to the mundane as they try to make sense of the world from the relative safety of their suburban patch of AstroTurf. Infused with the raw jagged energy of adolescence, THE WOLVES offers a refreshingly complex depiction of girls navigating friendships, growing up, confronting the future—and trying to score a few goals.
