“Backwards” tells the story of Abi Brooks (played by Sarah Megan Thomas), a fiercely competitive rower, who fails to make the Olympic boat for a second time and reluctantly takes a job coaching rowers at a high school where her boss happens to be her ex-boyfriend, Geoff (played by James Van Der Beek). When given a chance to rejoin the Olympic team, Abi confronts the personal sacrifices and professional choices that impact the world of athletes with Olympic ambitions.
Check out this behind-the-scenes clip of James Van Der Beek talking about what it was like to work with real-life rower and star of the film, Sarah Thomas.
