Sincere, top-notch performances from Hurt, Edward Woodward (as Champion's understanding boss), Jan Francis and Ben Johnson add credibility to John Irvin's wonderfully made film.

What the synopsis fails to mention is that Champion's horse, Aldaniti (who plays himself in the movie) also suffers a potentially career ending injury and must recover from that while Bob Champion is dealing with his cancer and the treatments.

This a great film. It doesnt shy away from the horrors of cancer treatment but gives hope and is a true tearjerker in a good way. Make sure you have some hankies!
