Uplifting and honest
18 September 1999 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Francis Barrett is one Olympian I will look forward to watching in Sydney next year. This look at his career and journey from a trailer park community in the hills of Galway to carrying the Irish flag at the Atlanta games was enjoyable mainly to the unpretentious charisma of Barrett. You genuinely root for him to succeed as he never forgets his family, friends and where he came from. Shame on his countrymen who look down at him and his community.
