Without Limits is a story about Steve Prefontaine, a runner for the University of Oregon. I enjoyed the movie much more than Prefontaine, which was released a year earlier. Donald Sutherland does an excellent job narrating the story as Bill Bowerman, the eventual founder of Nike and Pre’s mentor.

As a running story, it is well told and will hold the interest of people outside of the running and athletic world. You have the grand epic of a cocky summabitch striving for a gold medal and having to deal with various hardships, you got the kindly old man helping him along no matter how much he resists, you got the hot lady interest that plays hard to get, and you got a fairly good looking guy staring anywhere but forward while he is racing on screen.
