Trailer: Race – A Jesse Owens Biopic

This movie is a must see, because of the historical importance you mostly don’t read in school books. The biopic Race is based on the life of Olympic legend Jesse Owens, who’s widely recognised as “the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history.” Owens also competed at the 1936 Olympics during Hitler’s regime, winning four gold medals and countering Hitler’s belief that Africans were inferior to Germany’s Aryan “super race”. Stephan James (Selma) takes the role of Owens himself and co-stars include as Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses), Jeremy Irons (The Borgias), William Hurt (A History of Violence), and our own Carice van Houtem (Game of Thrones). Soon in a cinema near you.
