About Race

Race is a biographical sports drama film directed by Stephen Hopkins, which tells the story of Jesse Owens, the African-American track and field athlete who won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, defying Adolf Hitler's theory of Aryan supremacy. The film stars Stephan James as Owens, and Jason Sudeikis as his coach, Larry Snyder.

The film has received mixed reviews from critics. While some praised the performances of the cast, particularly James and Sudeikis, others criticized the film for its lack of depth and historical accuracy. The New York Times called it a "conventional biopic," while The Guardian criticized it for "sugarcoating" Owens' story.

Despite the mixed reviews, Race was a box office success, grossing over $24 million worldwide. The film was also nominated for several awards, including Best Supporting Actor for Sudeikis at the 22nd Critics' Choice Awards.

Overall, Race is a well-made film that tells an important story about one of the greatest athletes of all time. While it may not be perfect, it is still worth watching for its inspiring message and powerful performances.
