Hollywood Passes The Baton To ‘Race’... Story Of Gold Medalist Jesse Owens

February 22, 2016

"We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort."


Every second counts in the heart-pounding biopic Race as Stephan James revives the star power of four- time Olympic Gold Medalist Jesse Owens through the big screen.


Director Stephen Hopkins relays the perks and pressures of being Black and “the fastest man in the world” during the ‘30s. Despite battling an era of intense prejudice, Owens has a track record of coming in first from East Side Cleveland to Nazi influenced Olympic games in Berlin, Germany.  

Coach Snyder, played by Jason Sudeikis is a no-nonsense coach who challenges and supports Owens from Oklahoma State University to the 1936 Olympics and beyond.


From start to finish Race is a film worthy of reference to the courageous showmanship of Jesse Owens. The entire family will want to root at his victories and cry for his losses.


In theatres now this movie is a sure adrenaline rush!
