Toe to Toe, directed by Emily Abt, is a 2009 drama about an unlikely friendship between two very different girls. Tosha (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Jesse (Louisa Krause) are two senior girls at an elite Washington, D.C. prep school, and they are both star players on the schools Lacrosse team. That is where the similarities end. Tosha is a poor black girl attending the competitive school on scholarship. The neighborhood she was raised in is one of the poorest and roughest neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. Jessie is a troubled, promiscuous white girl from an affluent family. Jesse was raised in a glamorous Maryland suburb. Despite their differences, the teammates form a genuine friendship on the field. The girls enjoy each others company and try to continue their friendship off the field. However, being friends off the field proves to be difficult for the girls because the social differences between them create unexpected obstacles.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Ms. Abt provides an unusually honest, compassionate and challenging view of contemporary youth, neither sugarcoated nor prurient.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    For good stretches, Toe to Toe has an engaging frankness about youthful liberty as both a weighty armor and a dangerously alluring escape hatch.

  • 63

    Washington Post Ann Hornaday

    Resourceful, if occasionally forced, teen melodrama.
