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 »

I'd have to say it was a very well done movie. I do not know much about Terry Fox but I think Shawn did a good job of portraying what Terry must have been feeling during that time. I found out at the end of the movie that he died about 4 months after he completed that run. Possibly the hardship he endured getting thru the run sped his eventual decline. But yeah, good job Shawn. He is getting better and better at acting. I think people should see the movie, especially if you do not really know about Terry. By the way, if your are a crier, be warned, this movie will have you bawling. Keep a box of tissues nearby.:) As for the quality of the movie, I think they did a good job making it look and feel like you are back in the late '70s early '80s. All in all, I approve.
