CHARIOTS OF FIRE125 minutes / rated PG
In this Academy Award winner for Best Picture, two very different men on the same team vie to win Olympic gold to demonstrate to the world the worth of their deeply held--and strongly opposing--convictions. A friendship builds between the two in this true story that is as strong as their desire to win. Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson), a devout Scottish Christian, runs for the glory of God, while his teammate, Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross), a Jewish Englishman, is driven to win to overcome prejudice. As different as the two competitors are, the bond that develops between them reveals to both how complex their true motives are . . . and how much they really have in common.
