Trivia

The movie's debut cinema release was originally intended to coincide with the 1992 America's Cup but production delays and problems such as inclement weather problems during the shoot and funding & financing difficulties meant the picture got released after the 1992 America's Cup. See more »

Goofs

At the climax of the final race sequence, Charley (the red-headed crewman cut from the boat) is seen on the rail of the spectator yacht watching the race, and then inside watching on television in the next shot. See more »

For sailing enthusiasts.
11 April 2004 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wind is a great look at the sport of competitive sailing and also contains a bit of insight into mechanical engineering and the process of design and development.

Matthew Modine is Will Parker, a good sailor who is slightly overconfident about his skills. He joins the crew for the America Cup, but his actions help to lose the nation's undefeated title to their tough Australian rivals. This was more than just a loss of the cup to the new world champions, but it also ended his relationship with girlfriend Kate Bass (Jennifer Grey) and sent the boat captain into a bout of depression.

But, Will Parker, with the next Cup race rolling around, Will Parker wants to reunite a team, and seeks the help of Kate and her new beau Joe (Stellan Skarsgård) to help him rebuild his confidence, his team, and a better boat. Will and his team challenge the Aussie's to defend their title for a second year.

Indeed, as another viewer wrote, the movie is rather long. But, the subject of the movie is really something different, and the photography is just beautiful as you get the first-person perspective of competitive sailing, and it really gives an appreciation of what all goes into the sport, even the traditions. Modine's character is a little annoying because he sometimes obnoxiously boasts his masculinity to Kate as though trying to show up her new boyfriend, Joe. It's worth catching if you can find it around.
