Great movie
18 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie: poignant, very human and very funny. I am from Portland, Oregon and know numerous people who have run the Hood to Coast relay. They loved their experiences, the camaraderie, the excitement and the sense of accomplishment. This movie seems to truly tap into the emotional culture of this event and how meaningful it is to the participants. There are 4 distinct teams followed and each has their own unique "personality" and history. Some of the story lines are quite inspirational. I suggest you bring a Kleenex if you cry at movies much. It's easy to get involved with the runners. But you will definitely be cheering for them all by the end. It's also a gorgeous film to watch. The cinematography is stunning. But, this is a visually stunning state. Go see this film. You'll be very glad you did.
