Critic Reviews for Town Of Runners
The documentary, a must-see for any runner looking for inspiration, only skirts the reasons why the town of Bekoji seems to provide such an advantage to its young athletes.
This isn't a new story, young people having to rely on their athletic prowess to escape lives of poverty while navigating the adversities that life throws in their path. What Rothwell demonstrates is how universal that struggle is.
This amazing story might be familiar - it's one of those tales sporadically recycled by the Sunday glossies.
Unfocused, [Director Jerry] Rothwell touches on many subjects - education, sports, local politics, shoddy management, poverty, hopelessness - without ever digging very deeply into any of them.
"Running is a way of life here," says one of the coaches, and that's about as satisfying an insight as this documentary provides.
