Jennifer keeps being busy with yet another film this time playing a gymnastic coach in the movie “Full Out”.

Full Out is based on the true life story of California gymnast Ariana Berlin. As she zoned in on her Olympic goals, 14 year old Ariana Berlin’s life took a sharp turn when she was involved in a debilitating car accident. Gaining her confidence and movement back through learning hip hop dance, she unexpectedly found herself called back to the gymnastics world thanks to world renowned UCLA Coach Valorie Kondos Field (played by Jennifer). With Val’s help, Ariana was eventually able to secure a spot on the UCLA gymnastics team and win an NCAA championship, a lifelong goal that she had always dreamed of. This is a wonderfully inspiring story of persistence, confidence, and the heart and courage to make a somewhat impossible comeback in life.

The film is directed by Sean Cisterna. Degrassi actress Ana Golja will play Ariana Berlin and also starring  Sarah Fisher, Jake Epstein, Trevor Tordjman, Robbie Graham Kuntz, Lamar Johnson, Courtney Van Wirdum, Genny Sermonia, Ramona Milano and Asha Bromfield. Production of the film has begun in Toronto.
