Chariots of Fire...



I said in my LJ the other day that the only sports movie I'd ever liked was Bend It Like Beckham, though it seemed to me there must be another one I'd liked, surely, somewhere over the years. maaseru came up with it when I mentioned it to her. "Haven't you seen Chariots of Fire?"

Well, yes, I have, and loved it mightily. It was historical and unsentimental and had some good meaty issues in it. Good story, good acting, and good cast. Alice Krige was in it: I always like seeing her.
