This drama based on true events focuses on legendary black athlete Jesse Owens and his inspiring journey to overcome racism at home and abroad, culminating in his triumphant track-and-field performance at the 1936 Berlin Olympics under the tutelage of gruff Ohio State coach Larry Snyder. At the same time, Owens also contends with a rivalry with German competitor Carl “Luz” Long, while Olympic committee members Jeremiah Mahoney and Avery Brundage deal with Nazi propaganda minister and his desire to make the Games a celebration of Aryan supremacy. Directed by Stephen Hopkins. (allmovie.com)
