Davis joined TIFF’s Cameron Bailey for a conversation before the movie to talk about the making of the film and all of her memories from the shoot.

“The interesting thing for me has been, I have pretty much the same number of girls and young women recognizing me from that movie and telling me, ‘I play sports because of that movie,’ as I did almost 30 years ago,” Davis revealed.
