FROM 15 Jul
The Last Rider
Focus on the Documentary: The unbelievable story of cyclist Greg LeMond who came back from the brink of death after a hunting accident to win the closest race in the history of the Tour de France.
This absorbing documentary, shot entirely at a gym in the small town of Conroe, Texas, follows a small boy and a young woman as they prepare for their respective fights.
It is not a film about boxing; it is, rather, a study of dedication, even desperation, through unpacking the concept of American optimism and the unrealistic expectations that accompany it. Their struggles are mirrored by that of the gym itself, which is threatened with closure.
