This is my review of the film from when it premeired at DOC NYC
A look at the San Quentin 1000 Mile runners club. The club trains inmates to run in a marathon. The race is held in the yard of the prison and involves over a hundred circles. Through the discipline required to run the men find there lives have been changed as they realize that ultimately they can do anything they set their minds to.
I know this film film hits all of the expected marks, but at the same time the film is deeply moving. Say what you will I got misty at the end. I fell in with the men in the film and I was cheering them by the end. Actually I was enjoying the film so much I was seriously considering going to the public DOC NYC screening just so I could meet them in person.
What a wonderful story of hope.
