Storyline

Ultra-independent - a one person production start to finish - this movie looks at the passion and dedication of American athletes and coaches in the Olympic sport of weightlifting. The sport is extremely popular internationally, but obscure and struggling in the US, where athletes and coaches must train as amateurs with virtually no support, yet compete professional international counterparts. It's not just the story of a sport, but of the human spirit and the struggles and incredible dedication and hope of a small community of people despite the odds against them. Written by Anonymous

Extraordinary for the sport
2 December 2013 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I will admit that I have seen very few movies about Weightlifting. That's because there ARE very few movies about weightlifting and even less that are worth watching. This accomplishes both, and on top of that it was information, interesting, and visually appealing. I left it with a much greater appreciation of the sport and those who participate. Is it long? A bit. And a lot of visuals can seen repetitive at first, but keep going because I think that's the point. When you get right down to it, Weightlifting is two lifts. Those visuals actually really help you start to get a feel for the details and nuance of the sport. It was actually very clever (though people who are not at all interested in weightlifting may not be inclined to pay as much attention). The stories told and brought out are really nice.
