Great film
11 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Marathon is a film with a lot of heart. The visuals are really beautiful with a landscape filled with lush green pathways, orange skies, and ocean shores. The film jumps in time to the past and back again following the story of Richard Harteis and William Meredith (Pulitzer Prize winner and United States Laureate among many other things) after William had suffered a severe stroke. The poetry of Meredith is used in some select scenes and is really really wonderful. The story is a universal one of sacrifice and how the power of love can carry us through the toughest of times and although I myself am not gay, I really enjoyed the film and found the gay theme handled tactfully and respectfully.
