Guarding Eddie

An honest and rewarding look at friendship and personal growth. Based on a true story of an unlikely friendship between a semi-pro basketball player and an autistic 18 year old man. Somehow this film manages not to become sappy.

Eddy is a mentally disabled young man who leaves an abusive home to follow his dream: To play basketball for the Las Angeles Clippers. However, in LA he finds himself far out of his depth. Eddy ends up in a homeless shelter, where he meets Mike, an out of action NBA rookie serving community service. Mike reluctantly cares for Eddy but progressively takes responsibility for his new friend. Both Eddy and Mike grow and learn from each other through the film's journey.

Guarding Eddy is a genuine feel good movie; It is simple, honest and doesn't insult the audience. It would be incredibly easy to make this film cheesy and overly sentimental, however the makers maintain a level of believability through the characters.

Guarding Eddy is elegant in its simplicity. This is an honest and satisfying film, which leaves you feeling better for having watched it.
