Announcing the winner of our Best Picture Survey – chosen by our community!

Special guest and cast member Daniel Gerroll joins us for an introduction and brief Q&A before the film.

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. Yet a friendship builds between the two in this true story that is as strong as their desire to win in Chariots of Fire. Paris Olympics, 1924. Scotsman Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson–Gandhi) competes to prove the superiority of this Christian faith, while his teammate, Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross–Exorcist: The Beginning), a Jewish Englishman, is driven to win to show the world that Jews are not inferior people. But as different as they 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.
