Looks interesting. Apparently based on the book by Frank's wife written after his accident.

It looks very interesting. Here's the trailer from the Williams F1 channel:

I recently watched the new Bruce McLaren movie, maybe not something interesting to the rest of the world, but a good watch for Kiwi's. The Williams one should be interesting too.

We watched it on the SIL's home cinema. Roger Donaldson who did The Worlds Fastest Indian, unlike that movie he wasn't able to make replica McLarens and do footage of racing around tracks, so it's more an extended doco with some actors and voice overs, recreating a bit here and there, and lots of old footage. They did make a replica of Bruces Austin 7.

I would've liked a bit more of Denny Hulme in the story, but really, it wasn't about him. I've read Denny's bio, and there is more than enough for a movie...they just have to find someone tough enough for the role.

I'd like to catch both of them, but I suspect that in Canada, it might take a bit of effort. Heck, finding Mark Webber's book on the shelf has been a chore.

I'm surprised they carried it at all. Too limited of an audience appeal. My guess is it will pop up on some of the racing channels in the off season. A bit like The MLB Channel showing "Bad News Bears", or "Major League".

Yep, it'll be the same here. Heck, Canadian media coverage of F1 isn't great. Stroll's points and podium got more national coverage than the Montreal GP. All of a sudden, sportscasters know who Stroll is. Too bad he didn't have a string of podiums or something like that, so they could talk him up to the moon, and then have reality set in. wink

It was nice to see Sir Frank at the race today, too.
