Race —  6/10

This biopic shows us two truly astonishing moments in the life of athlete Jesse Owens: beating three world records in the span of 45 minutes, and bringing four gold medals from the Olympics in Nazi Germany – as a black man. It skips on the rest of his life, which was remarkably unremarkable. I was also impressed by the comparison of the levels of racism in Germany and US.
