About the Film
From Academy Award nominated director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) and producers Working Title Films (The Theory Of Everything, Everest, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), comes the true story of the meteoric rise and fall of one of the most celebrated and controversial men in recent history, Lance Armstrong. Inspired by the award winning book “Seven Deadly Sins” by David Walsh, and featuring a stellar cast including Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Chris O’Dowd (Calvary), Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), this tense and suspenseful thriller looks at how one of the greatest deceptions in the modern era was uncovered, while Armstrong convinced the world he was a hero through the most sophisticated doping program the sport had ever seen.
Not a true description of a great athlete.
One almost needs the "Armstrong Lie" as an introduction to this movie. And then the latter is much much better - gripping and telling the story well through this brilliant documentary.
"The Program" is slow and dull at times. It doesn't do David Walsh and his pursuit justice.
Not great! Still worth a watch..
Just a film version of david Walsh book. Could have been great. No great cycling, nothing exciting. As a cyclist and tour fan I just had to watch it. Read the book first.
