Jesse Owens’ quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy.

Without diminishing the accomplishments of Owens, the film reminds us of our blinkered history with race and the hurdles still ahead. Peter Travers·Rolling Stone
