Drive, determination and the spirit to win
2 June 2000 | by (Mount Vernon Missouri) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding film that unfortunately has been lost in the sea of Celluloid on the now defunct Lightning Video Label. Joanne Woodward is brilliant in this film and the supporting cast members back her full hearted all the way. Perhaps the best performance of her career and well deserving of the Emmy she won for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama.

This is a compelling drama about a strong-willed woman's desire to run in the Boston marathon. Although she initially begins her jog in the desire to take a few pounds off, she soon yearns to take it one step (after another) further. Betty Quinn (Woodward) is a 40 year old divorced school teacher with the middle age blues. Her two daughters and ex-husband dump their problems on her and she patiently copes. It isn't until Betty starts to jog that her life changes dramatically. Despite snapping dogs and would-be attackers, Betty is determined to run in the Boston marathon. But the grueling event may prove to be physically and emotionally impossible. I will admit I had some reservations about watching and reviewing this film. Why? I'm not sure. But like me, you will find yourself cheering for SEE HOW SHE RUNS!
