Based on a true story, Chariots of Fire is the internationally acclaimed
Oscar-winning drama of two very different men who compete as runners in the 1924
Paris Olympics. Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson), a serious Christian Scotsman,
believes that he has to succeed as a testament to his undying religious faith.
Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross), is a Jewish Englishman who wants desperately to be
accepted and prove to the world that Jews are not inferior. The film crosscuts
between each man's life as he trains for the competition, fueled by these very
different desires. As compelling as the racing scenes are, it's really the depth
of the two main characters that touches the viewer, as they forcefully drive
home the theme that victory attained through devotion, commitment, integrity,
and sacrifice is the most admirable feat that one can achieve. (Ian Holm was
nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor in his role as Abrahams' coach),
and this powerful film ended up with four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best
Original Screenplay, Best Costume Design, and Best Original Score.
