When Jesse Owens (Stephan James) arrives in Berlin for the 1936 Olympics, Adolf Hitler (Adrian Zwicker) is the center of attention. However, after winning 3 Gold Medals, Jesse stole the show behind chants of “Owens!”
The incredible true story of Olympic legend Jesse Owens is vividly brought to life in Race. In his epic quest to be the greatest athlete in history, Owens (Stephan James, Selma) chooses to compete in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, where he must overcome not only elite competition, but also the brutal racial climate of Adolf Hitler’s Germany. Also starring Jason Sudekis (We’re the Millers) and Academy Award® winners Jeremy Irons and William Hurt, Race is a film about courage, determination, tolerance, friendship and trust that critics are calling “Movie magic!” (Brian Truitt, USA TODAY).
