Chariots of Fire

Hugh Hudson’s exhilarating account of the struggle by Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams to compete on their own terms at the 1924 Olympics. In the religiously divided United Kingdom of the early 1920s, devout Christian Liddel sees running as part of his worship of God’s glory, while Abrahams overcomes anti-Semitism in his rise to the top. A rousing British drama which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards in 1982 and is fondly remembered for Vangelis’ soul-stirring synth score.
