In the late 1930s, a young machinist named Maurice Richard distinguished himself as an ice hockey player of preternatural talent. Although that was enough to get him into the Montreal Canadiens, his frequent injuries cost him the confidence of his team and the fans. In the face of these doubts, Richard eventually shows the kind of aggressive and skillful play that would make him one of the greatest players of all time as "The Rocket." However for all his success, Richard and his fellow French Canadians face constant discrimination in a league dominated by the English speaking. Although a man of few words, Richard begins to speak his own mind about the injustice which creates a organizational conflict that would culminate in his infamous 1955 season suspension that sparks an ethnic riot in protest. In the face of these challenges, Richard must decide who exactly is he playing for. Written by

The RCAF officer who rejects Maurice Richard's enlistment is wearing an only slightly modified modern Canadian air force uniform. At that time, the RCAF uniform was virtually identical to that of the RAF, which features light- and dark-blue bands on the cuffs as officer insignia. This officer's uniform very clearly had gold insignia on the cuffs, in keeping with what the modern air force has worn since the mid-1980s. See more »
This was an excellent movie. It will definitely be collecting quite a few rewards. If you're a hockey fan, you'll love it. If you're a movie fan, you should see it. If you're a Canadian, this is your history on film. I'm tired of constantly hearing people grumble about the state of Canadian cinema ("not enough money blah blah blah"). Well this is a great Canadian movie that stands up, so go see it and support it. This is one of those great films everyone's been saying they wanted.. It's about one of the greatest hockey players ever, and it's one of the greatest hockey movies ever. There is a lot of history in this film and it looks gorgeous. Roy Dupuis is excellent. One thing I did wonder, however, is why there is nothing about Henri Richard in it.
