He beat the odds… and became a legend! Inspirational and entertaining, Prefontaine is another acclaimed success from the makers of Hoop Dreams. It's the true-life story of legendary track star Steve Prefontaine (Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club), the exciting and sometimes controversial "James Dean of Track," whose spirit captured the heart of the nation. Cocky, charismatic, and tough, "Pre" was a running rebel who defied rules, pushed limits and smashed records, in an incredible against-all-odds quest for Olympic gold. The strong supporting cast includes R. Lee Ermey (The Siege of Firebase Gloria), Ed O’Neill (Disorganized Crime), Breckin Meyer (Road Trip), Lindsay Crouse (Iceman), Amy Locane (Cry-Baby) and Kurtwood Smith (RoboCop). The triumphs and heartbreaks of this unforgettable champion will have you riveted from beginning to end.
