A film about the American runner Steven Prefontaine.
This film was fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was on BBC2 very late so i thought it wouldn't be a good film because they usually put bad films on at that time of night, but OH MY WORD was i wrong!I loved it!it had a funky kind of feel to it (very cool) and great music! Jared Leto plays Prefontaine.Truthfully i had never heard of him before but i wont forget him! he is an amazing actor! not only was he amazing at acting he is very,very, very good looking!!!!!If you love drama, sports, romance, action, or hot guys this film has the perfect amount of everything for your taste! I would advise anyone and everyone to see this film!.GO PRE!!!!!
