Based on the best-selling book by Daniel James Brown, “The Boys In The Boat” tells the story of the bootstrapping University of Washington junior varsity rowing team that — against all odds — went on to represent the USA at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.
The true story, a rousing tale as much as a significant piece of history, takes place in post-Depression Washington state. Joe Rantz, a self-starter abandoned by his father and stepmother at a young age, lives in a shanty town and dreams big. Although he’s stubborn and hard working to a fault, self determination doesn’t pay the bills. Luckily, a fellow student encourages Joe to try out for the university rowing team, a spot that would come with food and lodging and enough money to pay for school.
Though they’re all from different backgrounds and bring drastically contrasting perspectives to the boat, the crew that was formed became a unit — and eventually an unbreakable bond. They go on to beat their local rival, securing a place representing the USA at the Olympics and overcoming incredible adversity to win the gold.
A true underdog tale about working as a team, “The Boys In The Boat” delivers a heartwarming and bold tale of perseverance and unity.
“This film reminds us that we are all in this together.” – George Clooney, Director
