The actresses who are part of the cast of “The Miracle Season” say that the message of female empowerment of the film could not have come at a better time. The production presents the true story of the West High volleyball team from Iowa, which reached the state championship after the death of one of its players: Caroline “Line” Found.
Erin Moriarty, one of the film’s stars, says that the issue of women working together to achieve a goal is particularly important in the #MeToo era, with women in Hollywood and in other parts of the world united to eradicate harassment and sexual abuse against him.
“I feel like the movement with what’s happening in Hollywood right now, in addition to this movie, really emphasizes the concept that if we’re all together, life will be much easier,” Moriarty said. “And we must assume these roles of force that are equal to men.”
Danika Yarosh, who also stars in the film, is optimistic that in Hollywood equality will be achieved in the workplace, and beyond.
“I think a lot of Hollywood is undergoing a change at the moment, especially with the movement (#MeToo),” he said. “There are more women entering the labor force and being recognized. I think that’s really very good and I’m anxious to see what it will bring next year and the years after that. ”
Helen Hunt, who plays the team coach, says the message behind the film came after filming began in Vancouver, Canada.
“I did not realize when I accepted the job of what I was going to be doing at that level. I just loved the director (Sean McNamara) and I thought it seemed like a good role and it would be a beautiful place to shoot. But I remember standing on the volleyball court, watching these beautiful souls watching me, as if waiting for me to say something and, fortunately, a really good writer told me to tell them: “I love them and I recognize what they do; enjoy it. It was perfect, “he said.
