    The term "sports film" doesn't do justice to the director Szabolcs Hajdu's movie White Palms, a punishing, beautiful drama.

    The film's climax, which cuts back and forth between the 16-year-old Dongo (Silas Radies, whose younger brother plays Dongo as a ten year old) making his dangerous debut with the fly-by-night Aurora Circus and the 2002 competition that takes him back to Hungary for the first time in years is nothing short of riveting.

    An uncommonly resonant sports drama in which a talented yet troubled gymnast comes to terms with a turbulent past.

    The bulk of White Palms--and the more riveting, grim storyline--is seen in flashback to the early 1980s.
