Chariots of Fire portrays two unique approaches to the pursuit of Olympic glory. While many strive to achieve glory for themselves and their countries, Eric Liddell ran to glorify God. In what may be one of the most powerful moments in the movie, Eric’s character demonstrates his approach perfectly as he reads from Isaiah 40 at the exact moment one of his Olympic events was scheduled to take place.
An inspirational look at the competitive spirit, featuring two runners competing for Olympic glory in their own fashion and for their own separate reasons.
Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture! The inspiring true story of British athletes competing in the 1924 Olympics. Ben Cross and Ian Charleson head a sterling cast of newcomers and veterans.
