Twenty-two-year-old sprinter Shania Edwards (Lenora Crichlow, Being Human) is from the wrong side of the tracks. She’s street wise, tough and determined to compete in the world athletic championships. After qualifying for the 200 metres her dreams become a reality. The only thing standing in her way is rival Lisa Temple, a posh, competitive girl with thriving ambition. But when placed on the same relay team Shania and Lisa are forced to overcome their differences and face adversity in a quest to take team GB to sporting victory.
- Behind the Scenes
Whilst the film makes no reference to it, you don't have to look far to see the influence of the London 2012 Olympics all over Fast Girls. First released in cinemas a few months before the games, the movie tells the story of a group of female sprinters who come together in an attempt to run their way to relay gold.
At the heart of the group are the street wise Shania, played by Being Human's Lenora Crichlow, and Lisa Temple, a rival who hasn't had to fight for what she is in quite the same way. It's a pretty conventional narrative that underpins it all, but this brisk, breezy British film is entertaining, well played, and enjoyable. There are welcome appearances from Rupert Graves and co-writer Noel Clarke, too.
Disc-wise, Fast Girls comes with a few interesting extra features. On top of the obligatory trailer, there's a look behind the scenes at the making of the film. Considering that it's a summer athletics film at heart, let's just say it was shot in a less-warm part of the year! There are interviews, too, to round the package out.
Fast Girls is a fun, lively sports movie, that doesn't outstay its welcome, and arrives on a disc that offers an interesting glimpse as to how it was brought to the screen. Conventional perhaps, it's strong cast and fast pace make the film a fun one. --Jon Foster

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But it works and the actors actually worked their bodies to resemble proper athletes! I know a few reviews here slag the film off but it really is good and as said the cast actually trained themselves to a top fitness level with 600 to 700 sit-ups alone per day.
It`s a good British made family flick to watch with some popcorn with the added bonus of NO swearing!
The story centres on the rivalry in female athletics. Typical posh vs poor underlying theme in the film. Perfectly good film, but don't expect anything profound or deep, it's a fluffy flick, but there's nothing wrong with that. Everyone needs a few of this kind of film in their collection.
