I watched this recently from beginning to end and I couldn’t believe how differently I feel about the ending.
Before I always, 100% felt that Dottie let go of the ball on purpose. I thought it was so obvious.
On rewatch I was like, “oh my god, she didn’t, she got it knocked out of her”. And the movie actually lays it out clearly that Dottie wanted to win. She wanted to win that game. Kit just beat her.
Changed the entire movie for me but not how much I still adore it.
