Share now:

The crowd goes wild as Jesse Owens (Stephan James) sets 3 world records in a row during an Ohio State University track and field meet. While traveling back home after the meet, Jesse’s coach, Larry Snyder (Jason Sudeikis), recalls his personal world record that Jesse shattered that day.The two continue to bond over their accomplishments and the future promise of their collaboration.

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).
