Coming of Age, Drama, Period and Historical
Canada, 1954. Teenager Ralph is busy dreaming about girls, but the priests who teach at his school think there are better uses of his energy and get him doing cross-country runs. And then Ralph himself becomes convinced that if he can run the Boston Marathon, it will trigger his mother's miraculous recovery from a coma. Although this is essentially an against-the-odds tale, it has many more funny moments than you normally find in this kind of film.
British director Tony Richardson's hard-hitting coming of age tale stars Tom Courtenay as a working class kid whose athletic talent sets him apart.
