Jesse Owens’ 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. (imdb)
It’s another inspiring story of a great athlete and his struggles with people at home and abroad to thrill and awe viewers. Fighting racism one win at a time at the Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936, Jesse turns into an icon of the defeat of a misguided ideology. Can you imagine the Twitter storm back then? I hope the movie delivers on the promise of the trailer.
