Inside Reign: Sydney Leroux and Megan Rapinoe

New, 20 comments

Filmmaker Scott Levy is at it again, this time sitting down with two of the biggest women's soccer stars in the world, both who happen to play with for the Seattle Reign

By now we're all used to the insightful answers Scott Levy is able to draw out of his subjects. But what we have here during this joint interview with Seattle Reign and United States national team stars Sydney Leroux and Megan Rapinoe is some next-level stuff.

As someone who has done hundreds if not thousands of interviews during my life, I know how the dynamic changes when you have two people being interviewed at the same time. It's awkward. Neither seems willing to really speak their mind. They look at each other for approval after virtually every answer. Personally, I try to avoid it.

But Levy absolutely makes it work, and ends up with an interview quite unlike any I've seen. Rapinoe and Leroux are clearly very good friends and have no problem being honest with one another. They delve into some of the challenges that face female professional athletes -- like having a relationship and potentially becoming mothers -- and let us into a side that we just don't get to see. And, of course, it's all beautifully shot. Enjoy.
