Reversal is a 2001 movie about a high school wrestler, directed by Jimi Petulla. The movie, starring Danny Mousetis, chronicles the struggle of Leo Leone as he strives for the Pennsylvania state title and his dad's affection. Coached by his father, Edward Leone (played by Jimi Petulla), he is constantly pushed towards this goal. He is forced to decide between the approval of his father or his own wishes as he feels the strain from years of training and making weight.[1] The movie never made it to the mainstream public, however received vocal support from many leaders in the wrestling community such as Cael Sanderson and Kurt Angle.[2]

The soundtrack was composed by Jeff Danna. His first credits were as a contributing composer for Fox's popular series Beverly Hills 90210. One of his more recent and noteworthy scores were for The Boondock Saints (Parts I & II). In 2001, other than Reversal, Danna composed three more films; O, The Grey Zone and Green Dragon. His music has also been heard on the hit syndicated series Kung Fu: The Legend Continues and in the telefilm "Baby," with Farrah Fawcett. [3]
