Prefontaine (1997): Brief Review

Prefontaine directed by Steve James (1997), is a film based on a true story about a young runner, Steve Prefontaine, who pushed himself and others to be greater but when his life is cut short you’re left with a feeling of what could have been. The story is inspirational and tragic. Everything that should have been never was and it just ends with that feeling like most things in life. The story itself was enjoyable to watch. However, the acting was a bit over the top at times, which takes you out of the viewing experience. It was still good but too much sometimes. The music choices were questionable at times and was another element that took me out of the story as it was a bit jarring. Overall, a good enough film to watch at least once but not for a repeat experience.
