Horrible Ken Read vanity piece.
10 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The opening credits state that this movie is based on Ken Read's book White Circus: A Skiing Life with the Crazy Canucks (1987). This book is purported to be Ken's autobiography, but the movie credits it as being "a novel". Clearly this movie is a manifestation of Ken Read's over inflated imagination of his so called accomplishments. This is the story of a man that only won a handful of races and then failed miserably when it really mattered at the 1980 Olympics.

Ken is well known in sports circles of being the most egotistical athlete Canada has ever produced. His shameless self promotion includes a museum he created about himself in a shopping mall in Banff Alberta, a fictional book about his exploits, the order of Canada and a star on Canada's walk of fame. Seems like overkill for a very sub par athlete. This movie is simply horrible.
