    Synopsis


    Race
    This drama based on true events focuses on legendary black athlete Jesse Owens (Stephan James) 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 (Jason Sudeikis). At the same time, Owens also contends with a rivalry with German competitor Carl "Luz" Long (David Kross), while Olympic committee members Jeremiah Mahoney (William Hurt) and Avery Brundage (Jeremy Irons) deal with Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels (Barnaby Metschurat) and his desire to make the Games a celebration of Aryan supremacy. Carice van Houten co-stars as controversial filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl. Directed by Stephen Hopkins. ~ Violet LeVoit, Rovi
