Summary
England's first athletes have begun their quest for glory in the 1924 Olympic games. Success brings honour to their nation. For two runners, the honour at stake is personal and their challenge one from within. Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Chariots of Fire is the inspiring true story of Harold Abrahams, Eric Liddell and the team that brought Britain one of its greatest sports victories. Ben Cross, Ian Charleson, Nigel Havers, Nicholas Farrell and Alice Krige enjoy their first major movie roles in this debut theatrical feature for director Hugh Hudson. Producer David Puttnam blended these talents to shape a film of unique and lasting impact. From its awesome footage of competition to its Oscar winning Vangelis score, Chariots of Fire has blazed its way into the hearts of movie lovers everywhere
