Rob Nelson, in his Sundance review for Variety, called it a “thoroughly winning” portrait of Pearce, whose 2009 accident while training for the Winter Olympics left him with a traumatic brain injury.

“Crash Reel” follows Pearce’s recovery from injury and his desire to return to the slopes with footage of snowboard and ski accidents and portraits of Pearce with his family.

Phase 4, which acquired the rights in May, will open the film in 10 markets and then expand it.
