Chariots of Fire, Blu-ray


Hugh Hudson directs this nostalgic tribute to Cambridge University athletes Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell, recounting the events of the 1924 Olympics.

Abrahams (Ben Cross) is a Jew who experiences racial prejudice at Cambridge, while Liddell (Ian Charleson) is a Scot who runs for the glory of God.

The two become rivals on the track, and both are chosen to represent Britain at the Paris Olympics.

However, a problem arises when Lidell learns that he is expected to compete on the Sabbath; something that goes directly against his religious beliefs.

The film won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score and Best Costume Design, and received a further three nominations.
