Chariots of Fire

Bold, stirring and with a highly-recognisable score, this highly-acclaimed drama is the winner of four Academy Awards, as well as three BAFTAs. Directed by the UK’s Hugh Hudson, and with a compelling screenplay by Brit Colin Welland, it features exceptional performances from its two British lead actors. Co-produced by UK-based Enigma Productions and Allied Stars.





In 1920s Britain, two dedicated runners train for the 1924 Paris Olympics. Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson) is a devout Christian who refuses to run on a Sunday, while Jewish Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross) faces an avalanche of antisemitism and class bias.
