  • Two seniors at an elite Washington, D.C. prep school forge a close relationship on the lacrosse field, only to find their growing bond tested in this drama inspired by a study that indicates interracial friendships end at age 14 for approximately 87 percent of American teenagers. Fiercely determined to succeed and build a brighter future outside of Anacostia, Tosha (Sonequa Martin) is an African-American scholarship student from one of Washington's poorest neighborhoods. Perhaps Tosha's polar opposite, Jessie (Louisa Krause) is a privileged white girl from Bethesda whose promiscuous tendencies threaten to become her undoing. Though the relationship shared between the two girls is most certainly of the love/hate variety, they both strive to gain a better understanding of one another's plight as society threatens to drive them ever farther apart.

  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] social melodrama in the truest sense....Abt makes her dramatic feature filmmaking debut in an impressive fashion after directing a series of political docs."
    Box Office

    "The film's observations about race, class and friendship are clear and accessible without being overly didactic..."
    New York Times

    "[F]or good stretches, TOE TO TOE has an engaging frankness about youthful liberty as both a weighty armor and a dangerously alluring escape hatch."
    Los Angeles Times
