“Director Eric Drath delicately uncovers Renee’s history as if he were dusting off the many trophies that grace her shelves. Each memory is revealed as a shining and unique relic. From the internal battle of whether to undergo the invasive sex reassignment procedure to the external battle she faced against the United States Tennis Association, Renée invites the audience into a life lived with strong will, determination, physical endurance—all the attributes of an athlete, male or female. “(Ashley Havey)
“A beautifully done documentary. Kudos aplenty to Director, Eric Drath, http://www.linkedin.com/pub/4/a07/992 and Cinematographer, James Fideler, http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=14997874 !!!
Several younger women, who did not know Renee, came up to me to tell me how inspired they were by your film.
The film shows, clearly, what a stalwart, kind, sensitive & courageous person (and athlete) she is. A testament to an unwavering spirit lived..unwavering spirit lies within us all. Grab hold of it and live it! ” (France Menk)
