Race is based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens, the legendary athletic superstar whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy. Race is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man’s fight to become an Olympic legend. (c) Focus

Insider’s tip: “. . . the movie gives us a complex picture of an America that had its own racial problems in 1936, as well as a flesh-and-blood portrait of Owens that leaves room for heroism but that also shows his lusts and temptations and a star athlete’s ego. This is a profound saga that makes for a great American movie . . . .” (Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle). Sheri Linden of The Hollywood Reporter adds: “Owens’ triumph is long overdue for big-screen treatment, and director Stephen Hopkins delivers stirring moments . . . .”
