PICKLED, 14min., USA
Directed by Megan Brotherton
Molly McCallum was a fierce pickleball player. She and her husband were at the top of their game and then...they had a baby. When they return to their old tournament, their league rejects them because Molly is now over the 35 year age limit. Molly's husband quickly registers them in another tournament to cheer her up. When the new league doesn't live up to her expectations she loses it and unleashes an angry competitive side that even her husband has never seen before. Her frustrations from feeling old and rejected turn to rage and aggression towards her opponents, until she meets her match: a senior player with real swagger and some important life lessons for Molly. Will she dominate her new league or broaden her understanding of what winning is really all about?
