About the Movie
Plumb Marigold is a famous but lonely distance runner preparing for the biggest race of her life: The Olympic Trials. But when an injury forces her to take an unexpected day off, Plumb wanders into a bakery where the aimless boy behind the counter catches her eye. In this story that captures the experience of a young Olympic hopeful, many of the actors are actual Olympic athletes -- including co-writer/director and lead actor Alexi Pappas.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ms. Pappas has little dialogue, but the camera adores her expressive, wide-eyed face, which conveys plenty.
Fresh: What the film lacks in originality, it makes up for via its star's naturally glamor-resistant sensibility, giving us an unpolished glimpse into the personal life of a professional runner.
Fresh: "Tracktown" feels utterly authentic and earnest, even if the latter quality may serve as a turn-off to the more cynical in the audience.
Rotten: I wished Pappas had tapped deeper into the dark side she hints at - the side that makes her protagonist more concerned about being a winner than about being a person.
Honest, authentic, and unique
A rare independent coming of age that has heart, humor, and is entertaining while giving you the behind the scenes of the track world. Two thumbs up!!!
