The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner

Stuff your privilege.

Tom Courtenay embraces the British angry young man movement in this introspective tale of a hoodlum who gets a chance to change, but throws it away for honor.

Packed away to a detention facility after running wild in the streets, he comes to the attention of the warden for his skill in running.

Lost in his own thoughts and memories while running, Courtenay can lap just about anyone on the cross country circuit, setting up a big race which will affect his future life.

But, if you’re here for a big rah-rah win, you’re missing the point.
