Trivia

In the re-enactment of Terry Fox's speech in Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square, Terry is wearing a hockey jersey with nothing on the front. In real life, he was wearing Darryl Sittler's NHL All-Star Team jersey (with the NHL logo displayed predominantly), but the cost of licensing the NHL logo meant the shirt was left blank (though Sittler's name and number is still on the back) See more »

Goofs

In one scene, Bill Vigars refers to Canada Day, the July 1 holiday commemorating the Confederation of Canada. This may be perceived as an anachronism, as the holiday was not officially known as Canada Day until 1982; in 1980, its official name was still Dominion Day. However, it should be noted that informally, many Canadians were already referring to the holiday as Canada Day; the official name change *reflected* an already existing usage. See more »

Deeply Moved
17 September 2005 | by (Calgary, AB) – See all my reviews

Wow. Shawn did an amazing job of being Terry Fox. The movie was motivational, tasteful, authentic, and used very convincing digital editing. You'll definitely need some tissues though!

I grew up knowing about Terry Fox. We has studied him in school and I knew his story but to see this movie made the miracle of hope much more real to me. I'm the same age as Terry was when he did his run and I'm really amazed that someone my age accomplished so much and was so very mature and wise beyond their years.

I'm moved. Deeply Moved. I really hope they release this one on DVD even though it's suppose to be a TV special.
