"A winning, winsome comedy.

- The Hollywood Reporter
"Tracktown [is] an indie film akin to Juno or Superbad — suburbanesque landscapes, twinkling homemade soundtrack, and a character who comes of age both in response to and in rebellion against the sport she loves so much."
- New York Magazine
"A refreshing new entry into the sports genre, one steeped in intimate human stakes while also acting as a sharp contrast to the testosterone and masculinity that has overcrowded the scene for so long.... The film is an entertaining mix of warmth, humor and quirk that’s easily worth cheering for" - Cromeyellow
