what comes first?
29 November 2002 | by (middlesex, nj) – See all my reviews

Second Wind is a running film that came out in the late seventies. Not a very good cinematic movie and is surely not an award winning film. The film does capture the excitement of wanting to run and testing ones limits. The film also portrays the what AMERICAN BEAUTY portrayed just a few years ago. What can happen to a business man who gets tired of his life. The main character Roger is a successful stock broker who has a fancy for running. When he decides to start running his relationship suffers, he is tested with adultery, his work suffers and his family life crumbles. What has to be understood though is that when an athlete is in training the athlete has to put in a 100 percent commitment. The athlete needs support from his or her family. So who is right in this film? Is Roger right in wanting to train and pursue a career in running? Or does the family come first rather than ones happiness?
