Silken is amazing, but this film sure isn't
21 July 1999 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This so-so TV-movie is a nice tribute to one of Canada's greatest Olympians, but I still think that Silken deserved a little better. If you're unfamiliar with Laumann's story, then perhaps this will prove to be an eye-opening experience, but in general, this movie is average at best. More than ever, I now appreciate what a courageous effort she gave, but much of the film takes place before her injury, and quite simply, these parts really aren't all that interesting. I'll never forget Silken's Olympic effort, but this movie about her is actually quite forgettable.
