A young Michael Douglas plays fictional marathoner Michael Andropolis, who is in the midst of a divorce and career breakdown while he trains for the chance to run in the marathon at the 1976 Olympics.
Against all odds, he reaches the Olympics and is running well in the race until he falls, leaving him injured and presumably out of the race.
Comedian Simon Pegg may have run from zombies in “Shaun of the Dead,” but his greatest challenge is running a marathon to win back the love of his life in this comedy directed by David Schwimmer.
Full of racing puns and inside jokes, this comedy follows Pegg’s character, Dennis Doyle, who goes from being unmotivated and lazy to a determined marathoner as he trains for the Nike River Marathon (a fictional marathon meant to represent the London Marathon).Some endure the challenge and reach their destiny, while some fail only to return again and again.What Mel Stuart’s documentary accurately portrays is that the race—and ultrarunning—is a celebration of the everlasting perseverance of the human will over the temporary aches and pains of the human body.In what is the biggest challenge of his young life, Korir took on a well-financed, big-party candidate to earn a seat in Kenyan Parliament with the hopes of playing a role in reshaping life in his native country. resident who graduated from the University of Louisville in 2008, founded the Kenyan Kids Foundation and has worked with Kenyan dairy farmers to improve production.His story is told with help from running greats like Haile Gebrselassie, Kenenisa Bekele, Mo Farah, Ryan Hall and best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell. A film about struggle and triumphs in all aspects of life, this “running-changed-my-life” movie was produced during the original American running boom of the 1970s.But after being tended to by medics, Andropolis gets back on his feet and finishes the race hours after it ended.
