Comm Ed & Rec to show ‘Race’

Plymouth School District Community Education and Recreation will show the movie “Race” as part of its free films series.

“Race,” which appeared in theaters earlier this year, is the story of legendary athlete Jesse Owens, who competed in the 1936 Olympics.

The movie, which is rated PG-13 for thematic elements and language, will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17 in the auditorium at Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave. Admission is free.

Young Jesse Owens (played by Stephan James) becomes a track and field sensation while attending the Ohio State University in the early 1930s. With guidance from coach Larry Snyder (Jason Sudeikis), Owens gains national recognition for breaking numerous records. After heated debates, the United States decides not to boycott the Olympics in Nazi Germany. Overcoming racism at home and abroad, Owens seizes the opportunity to show Berlin and the world that he’s the fastest man alive.

Others in the Fall Free Films series included “Alive Inside,” “The Boys of ‘36” and “Being Mortal” (shown at Generations).
